Photographing the moon with the Raspberry Pi camera module & 3D printing

James Mitchell, who runs the Berlin Raspberry Jam, decided that he wanted to indulge his obsession of photographing the moon. So, he took a Pi Camera Module, removed the lens and attached it to a 3D printed mount onto which he attached a Canon 78-300mm lens. He connected it up to a Pi, set the lens to 300mm and took a shot of the moon from his balcony. A little Photoshopping to clean the picture up resulted in the image above. For more detail and photos of the rig, take a look at James’ blog.
