Simple analog inclinometer

I was looking for a system to check the tilt of my yagi for moonbouncing. Actually I use a linear actuator for dish, it sends  pulses when moving, a pic counts these pulses, makes some calculation then prints on the lcd the elevation in degrees.

But I need some feedback, so I’ve realized a very simple (and analogic) inclinometer. Only parts needed is a good potentiometer with ball-bearing and a plastic box.

For the reading circuit, one can use an A/D (embedded in almost every pic) or classic analog panel meter, I’m working there on…
