About Astrojohn

I am a science geek! Interests Astronomy, Skiing, Philosophy, basically any form of technology including writing automation software for my observatory. I will also share this with others using the same EQMOD/Astroart tool set.

Cloud sensor -Pi build

Just completed the design of a cloud sensor to replace the one that died.

The system has a telnet server built into the Pi. This allows remote systems to access the sensors and display the IR sky temperature, barometric pressure and humidity. The IR sensor is quite accurate and has internal calibration.

As you can see the IR sensor is being tested measuring the heatsink temperature of the Pi.

I have also built remote displays to communicate with the sensor system.
