    Turret is built, dirt cheap servo are highly unreliable and unprecise, but the proof of concept is here, step are to big to target a mosquito at more than 20 centimeters.

    Investigation stepper motor and gear boxes.

    Bought dirt cheap servo to build the turret, never used servo or motor before

    I will control them using a Adafruit I2c/usb board with a I2c PWM board, the i2c board will be connected to my computer.

    OpenCv insect detection is working fine but is not fast enought to be real time.

    Since it's impossible to take 2 pictures at the same time waiting to get camera that can be sync before continuing machine vision part.
