It took days, but my homing routine seemed to be working reliably. Finally, I was able to run a function that would automatically count the encoder segments for me. Of course, I could have counted them by hand and made my eyes go bleary, but that didn’t sound like much fun after I had already installed an optical encoder meant for counting.

Spreadsheet breaking down the counted values

Before, I assumed the encoder count was close enough to 100 that I could use the value was a placeholder, and it worked well for preliminary position tracking. 96 seemed to be a more accurate answer, so I changed the software to recognize the new count, and the steadiness of the display increased dramatically. The time-lapse video below those that the clock numbers stay right where they are supposed to, with so little variance that it should not be a nuisance.
(0:25) Tracking is more accurate
