    Hi Guys,
    After reading a great article about the new RPi based detection setup I knew I needed to give it a try. I have played around with the idea of the UKMON setup, but upon reading this one it finally made it affordable to do!
    I’ve just received the RPi 3b+ with the real time clock, I just need the cooling fan and to install the software.

    Does anyone have a good source of the camera and lens?

    Also, can the RPi deal with more than one camera? It would like to have several in place on the roof 🙂 I’m also planning on making a portable setup to take to dark sky locations when we have meteor showers due to add an additional tracking station 🙂

    Looking forward to getting it up and running!

    Unfortunately not, even now it’s running at 70% CPU, plus it has to decode the H264 video stream in real time on the GPU. So it’s one camera, one Pi.

    Cheers,
    Denis
