During your presentation at the Unconference you mentioned that your biggest expense was the mount. Have you looked at the servo mounts on Aliexpress? There's a design out there that uses the little servos that come in every starter kit that I've gotten in the past for about 60 cents. 

They have beefier ones that resemble the one you were using for about 5 dollars or so.

Details! Details! (they all cried) For me the software explanation was the coolest part. You moved moutains to get this level of quality. Do tell.

Your presentation at the Hackaday Unconference in Chicago inspired me to look into focusing methods for IR sensors, which has helped me immensely (I purchased a non-contact temp sensor on Sunday and soldered in headers to start tests - found that the sensor has a fresnel lens to focus the IR heat signal).  Can't wait to further details of your project!!
