I wouldn't use a servo for this. You don't have very fine control over the angle with a servo. Also with a typical telescope the focus is more on rather slow and precise movements, instead of fast ones. Instead I would use a stepper motor. Depending on your exact requirements, these can be rather cheap to rather expensive. Here also the mechanics come into ...

It let you define a position where the movement should end, an acceleration or speed and the controller moves the motor to that position. The run method must be called permanently, It triggers the steps. So, I put ...
