Look at the K3NG rotator controller
Lots of encoder options
I use AEAT 6012 12 bit absolute encoders with homebrew shaft mounts but other options are available
Az drive is homebrew , El drive heavy duty jackscrew.
Both encoders mounted on the rotating axis.
This is with an Arduino Mega 2560 and tracks my 3m dish to 0.1 degree positioning.
Park and stop limits fully define in software
I am not a software person and this was my first venture into Arduino but I got their with help from Doug G4DZU
If anybody wants further info then please contact me directly.
