    You know you're filming this right? Like, you know the camera is on don't you? And that you can edit out the parts where you bumblefuck your way through things, which is pretty much 35 minutes of this 37 minute video.

    Don't use 3D printed junk, it is just that, junk. Also dear lord, one of these guys knows what he's talking about, the other is a blathering fool who's turned a 2 minute video into almost 3/4 of a bloody hour.

    so can the print be modified for a bigger mirror

    sorry but I wonder how a 1.5 M channel gets by without even 1080p? You even have sponsors, what about asking them for a propper camera?

    Does the software compensate for mirror reversed image?

    If you need 5 inch PVC, don't get plumbing pipe. Look for 5 inch PVC electrical conduit. Could be hard to find depending on your location, but still far more common than 5 inch plumbing pipe in the USA.

    I'd heard that 0.2mm layer height was stronger than lower layer heights for a .4mm nozzle.

    Is there a link to buy the fully assembled telescope?

    does this project incorporate an xyz tilt sensor

    I'm curious if you guys know about a similar project like this done roughly 2 years ago but utilizing the technology of an IPhone 6, where it was completely motorized and a free open source. If I find the files, I'll posted here.

    I like where it is going, but…
    A decent telescope is not complete without equatorial mount with motor drive. There are different options, but only equatorial mount requires a single motor to track stars.
    Making an equatorial mount would be awesome!

    Question: In a typical reflecting telescope, the magnification is the ratio of the focal length of the primary mirror to that of the secondary eyepiece. So you change magnification by changing eyepieces. If there is no secondary optical element, however, what is the magnification and how do you control it?

    Are there any images for this scope of than the poor quality one of the moon?

    36min of sad low tech bulshit to allow sales from overpriced sources. This is as bad as a Bell & Howell flashlight commercial!

    Don't glue the mirror mount. Rather use screws or you will not be able to clean it. Consider black cable or black paint and flocking to reduce internal reflections. After mounting raspi, then locate the talescope mounts for best for/aft balance. Finally, telescope is only as good as the tripod.

    be very carefull after taking the lens off of the camera module,..
    dust and other crap on the sensor is a big problem

    Tyler, tell me you guys are selling those Make work shirts in the store sometime soon? 😀

    So centering the mirror on its bracket is the most important step to get correct, and don't show us how to do it?

  32. Angel Luis Trinidad

    What about using a screw driver instead of your finger nail in the first place? I can't stand stupidity.

    PVC plumbing pipe

    So, I'm guessing you guys didn't rehearse this before taking it live?

    What is the cost of the mirror? I could not find it. Can you get a bigger mirror and would that give you more magnification? Thanks

  37. Manfred Knorr

    Putting the camera inside the tube seems like a bad thing to me. It would block a lot of the light coming in compared to a mirror.

    Thanks for tutorial. This helps me figure out how to see through the Bushnell telescope I bought at goodwill. That looks so much fun to see on a screen without straining through a scope that is upside and backwards.

    With camera projects like this that use Raspberry Pi cameras. Couldn't you just use an old smartphone or tablet for it's inbuilt HD camera? Is the Raspberry Pi camera better?

    Thanks, can we maybe get a comparison on magnification from an 85mm lens(approx human vision) versus telescope? Thanks again
