Why would you wish to change the zoom when shooting a panorama?

What brand and model of camera and lens do you have?

Then I guess you'll need something like this?:

If you were using a supported Canon P&S/compact camera then you could use PS Remote software, I believe it offers control of the zoom motor:

How tall is your mast?

@crom, no, the Merlin/Orion can't drive a zoom ; there is no output for that.

Andrew's link made me think that some guys designed such systems, on thingiverse:
