Build Your Own All Sky Camera

Always wanted an All Sky Camera? Just follow these instructional videos! By using the Raspberry Pi 4, a ZWO camera (or RPi HQ Camera), and a fish-eye lens, you can start right away!

This project is something ANYONE can complete. Never worked with a Raspberry Pi? Don’t worry! Let me get you started with some simple instructional videos.

Need help finding the right items to purchase? I will put a list below the videos (as well as in the description of each All Sky build video if you watch directly on my Patriot Astro YouTube page).

Please subscribe to my YouTube page to follow my upcoming projects and Astrophotography!

Here is Part 1 of the All Sky Build Series. This will take you through assembling the Raspberry Pi 4, installing and completing the basic configuration of Thomas Jacquin’s great Allsky software, connecting the camera and starting to take your first All Sky images/videos!
Here is Part 2 of the All Sky Build Series. Here I will take you through building a portable 12v battery box that allows you to take this fun astrophotography tool along with you!
Need some help with the basics of how some of the tools work? Watch this video to get comfortable with the tools I commonly use in my build videos.
