All Sky Camera

I was in need of a project and had a spare original version ZWO 120MM floating around so decided to dabble in Raspberry PI for the first time. A trip to Jaycar, a bit of Google and Youtube and some time in the shed...voila all sky camera operational.

Not really sure on the whole PI thing in terms of the OS however the Github install went without issue. Also worked out how to remote access the PI with Putty along the way (thanks to Troy!)

All cloudy tonight and need some stars to tweak the focus but can see this coming in handy while imaging from the comfort of the house.
