Raspberry Pi Night Vision Project - Build a night vision scope

Hello Everyone, Before we all go shooting me down, not literally, I am not going to be using Raspberry Pi Noir camera. The reason being is the sensor is too small for what I need it for without getting a bit IR torch. So I am going to be using a USB camera to drive it. I've got the camera up and run...

Re: Raspberry Pi Zero - Slow Motion scope camera

It is not as tidy as I'd like, I'll upload some pictures shortly. I've done another video blasting other stuff and it came out pretty well. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM-flZV64T491RnptOWexcGTNdDBXvJz- The code for it is on here along with the wiring https://diynightvision.blogspot.co.uk/...

Re: Raspberry Pi Zero - Slow Motion scope camera

Well that went better than I expected.

Using the Noir V2 I have managed now to get night vision and slow motion.

Raspberry Pi Zero - Slow Motion scope camera

Hello Folks, I am so excited that I have finally managed to get around to doing something I have wanted for years. A Raspberry Pi driven scope came that does slow motion. I did something similar a while ago using the B version but it was too big. So when the Raspberry Pi Zero came along I was chuffe...

DIY Night Vision - Raspberry Pi Noir scope camera prototype

Hello Folks. Not sure how many people are even interested in this but I am building a scope camera using the Raspberry PI Noir module. Essentially I wanted to get better quality footage than my current Night Vision setup. Alas the Noir needs a fair old whack of IR light to make it work at the ranges...

Re: Raspberry Pi - Temp sensor hysteresis with python

Ok another addon

I have just built in the ability to increase and decrease a set point temperature via the web page.

Take a peek on how it works. I am sure this will help someone who may be doing the same thing.

Raspberry Pi - Temp sensor hysteresis with python

Hey everyone, I thought I would just share this. I have been playing around with the ds18b20 temp sensor and a web interface for a while now.

ds18b20 ordering the sensors

Hello folks I need to come up with a way of not having to hard code each temperature sensor and assign them a number of say 1 2 and 3. My thoughts are to connect one sensor at a time and append the identifier to a file and each sensor added increases the number or all sensors are connected but a tem...

Re: M12 lens adapter for camera module

I have managed to get hold of some lens mounts that fit nicely because they are the 21mm spacing.

Re: TUTORIAL: DS18B20 temp sensor. No C or Python!!! Cost: $

The guide is excellent and does exactly what is required. If you want to polish it off have a quick look at the video I did that shows you how to get the readings to display on a web page. I can easily see what the temperature is anywhere in the world now.

Re: GPIO connection with Temperature sensors

Here's a quick video about how to get the reading. Very simple, almost too simple.....

I am just finishing one to show how to wire it but that is pretty simple too. However I did solder one sensor but managed to burn my fingure in the process.
