This year I wanted to take photos of Perseids meteor shower in my town, but the problem was that every time my camera (D7100) was reloading, with naked eye I saw a trail. Maybe I could spend more time and set this up for the whole night but I realized that home made portable bolid observatory would be a great idea. Then in my Department kitchen I have found out about raspberry and this was it! An idea and tool.

I will use here already published ideas so the project is not so innovative, but because nobody has published it in one place I will try to do it. Fingers crossed!
