  • The Amazing Weather All-Sky Camera

    Welcome to the All-Sky camera page of the site! I found instructions and the idea online to turn a Raspberry Pi into an All-Sky camera. And, you know what?! It's pretty dang awesome! Well, mostly. Here in Alaska, it has been pretty snowy, rainy, and cloudy. However, I have managed to capture some of the moon and stars at night. Check it out and let me know what you think.

    The All-Sky camera I built is portable, so keep an eye out...we might catch some aurora shots on our occasional light chasing nights!

    Happy browsing and keep looking up! 😉😊

    The All-Sky camera I built consists of a Raspberry Pi 4, Raspberry Pi HQ camera, a 7" piece of ABS pipe, two rubber end caps, and an acrylic dome. The first iteration used a sealant which failed and allowed water inside of the dome area. This iteration, Mk.2 as I call it, is sealed with silicone and wrapped with duct tape and flex seal tape. It is an experiment, so we'll see how well she holds up! Some photos are below to show how I put it together.
