I would like to build a Raspberry Pi setup with a camera, the idea being that the camera sits outside, pointed at the sky, and sends the video stream to my computer, inside my home. I'd like to use the camera for skywatching/recording (stars, meteors, clouds, etc.). I am a computer scientist, so I know my way around code - it is more the hardware and camera that I am not all that familiar with, as I am pretty new to Raspberry Pi. Also, if you have any general advice, I'd love to hear it.
- What is the ideal camera for this?
- Which PI would be best here?
- Which (if any) other modules/boards (e.g. wifi module) do I need?
- How can I power this thing? What are my options? Ideally, I would not have to recharge batteries, and I would not need to run a power cord outside...
