Just finished my Raspberry pi-sky box.
 

POE injectors ~ IP66 box ~ perplex dome 100mm ~ RPI
 

This is a model A, in the final setup there's a model B+. This was just a test as my model A was just there close by.
 

NoIR camera ~ M12 lens adaptor ~ M12 Lens aperture F/1.6 | focal length 2.9mm | 
 

All sealed....
 

nearly finished product (need to adjust the focus for the stars then seal the dome and fix it with a set of small bolts/nuts.)
and add the Arduino weather station within the box.
From the indi-duino code at indiduino.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/meteostation/
 
 
 
 
I've been testing it the other night, with the tool raspistill, 10sec pictures and you can clearly see the night sky.
Quite impressed with it to be honest.
 
The box will also host the weather station (awaiting delivery of my second arduino, the first one didn't survive my mistake.... oops,,,, smokeyyyyy)

Very nice project! Once you are done with it, do you mind writing a short write-up for INDI main website? :-)

Thanks, sure I'll write something up.
Still waiting for a few tiny bits for the weather station.

Once it's all done and calibrated, ie: live...

Some parts still haven't arrived, I cannot finish the weather station that goes into the rpi-all-sky camera.

I have now almost completed the rpi-sky camera + weather station using indiduino.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/meteostation/
But I forgot to get myself a small solar panel to measure the light. The weather station does work quite nicely even without it.

The only issue I see, is the report of the temperature. Not quite sure it's accurate.
