Cristos Vasilas added a Raspberry Pi with camera board to his telescope, and took great video!

My rPi camera board arrived from Element14 this week. I was anxious to get it connected to my rover, but once I saw the quality of the image it produced, I decided to use it as a wireless image/video capture for a Celestron NexStar 6″ Telescope. After a day of learning how to stream video and crafting an attachment to an eyepiece, I spent a couple of hours waiting for the clouds to clear and was able to catch some great video of the Moon and Saturn.
