This is a mount that allows a Raspberry Pi camera (v1 or v2) to be used in a telescope for astrophotography. The eyepiece will fit any 1.25″ focuser. To use the Pi Camera for astrophotography you will need to remove the lens that covers the sensor, this can be done with a pair of long nosed pliers, carefully gripping the lens and rotating. YOU MUST GRIP THE CIRCULAR PART AND NOT THE SQUARE PART.
There are two files, one for the eyepiece that goes into the focuser and another for a cap that sits over the top, you will also need the following:
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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.
