I recently bought a Celestron Astromaster 130EQ, after taking it out a couple of times I soon realized I wanted to take photographs and share with friends. After reading up on astrophotography I was disappointed to find that most of the information on moding a webcam was based on the long discontinued Philips CCD webcam. After more searching I decided to bite the bullet and try out a webcam mod and see what results I got myself rather than fretting over the perfect webcam to mod and end up doing nothing at all.
I decided to go with the Logitech C270, it was readily available, good build and good image quality.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
