Ever wanted to get a better view of the stars in the night sky or, if you live an area with northern lights, a great photo of the aurora borealis? This Raspberry Pi project comes to us from a maker known as Jani. Using just a couple of Raspberry Pis and the HQ camera, they were able to capture time-lapse images of the night sky with a beautiful end result.

According to Jani, the goal was to automate a night sky camera with temperature control to withstand more serious weather conditions. The setup uses a Raspberry Pi along with a 180° lens for the camera module.
