This Raspberry Pi Optical Tracking Telescope is a wonderfully innovative and exceptionally high-tech new telescope, developed by Toby Kurien, that was constructed together by making use of a miniature Raspberry Pi personal computer in addition to a variety of 3D printed parts.

Called the PiScope, this particular tracking telescope is the result of an open source project that is designed to make it easier than ever to carry out basic astro-photography by making use of open source computing and 3D printing. The tracking telescope doesn't just feature intelligent coding however, as it is also distinctive for exceptional woodwork and design, not to mention electronics work.

Ultimately, this tracking telescope goes to show the utility of open source coding and computing to create affordable yet extremely well functional technological devices.
