PiKon - 3D Printed Telescope

The Raspberry Pi Camera powered astro-cam for the home constructor

Created for Sheffield University’s ‘Festival of the Mind’, the PiKon is the world’s first 3D printed telescope and uses the revolutionary Raspberry Pi computer and camera to capture images. Described as “one of the two showcase projects of the festival”, the PiKon went on to be crowd funded as a home construction kit and is now available as an open source project on web sites such as Instructables.com and Thingieverse.com.
