:p


I know, I paid too much, it's probably refurbished, etc., etc., etc..

But, it's all mine!!

I plan on getting a split-rail power supply for it and at some point hooking it up to an arduino. That will be a couple of months down the road though. I need to build the bank account back up.

Those Ophir heads are great :D

For hooking it up to an Arduino you can reference Trevor's's guide here:

Trust me, I've spent way too much time searching the site for LPM/arduino information. That's why I decided to buy the head and eventually pick up an arduino.

I got it now because they are available and they may not be in a few months when I can pick up everything else. I plan on documenting my progress here.

I have to finish up some other projects first and then I can start on the other hardware.

ebay. Read some old posts and then saw that the seller still had some advertised.

Sure, it wasn't as cheap as they have been but the price seemed ok to me.

Lots of info about the Ophir head around here. You can't go wrong with it, I'm very happy with mine :)
