What you need to build a PiKon telescope except for the 3D printed parts, Raspberry Pi computer, camera or Pi case. So if you have your own 3D printer and Raspberry Pi computer and Pi Camera, this is the kit for you.

The PiKon telescope has been around for almost 8 years and in that time, the Raspberry Pi organisation has introduced 2 new cameras and several iterations of the Raspberry Pi computer. So to avoid confusion, we are introducing the PiKon Platinum which includes all the nuts and bolts you’ll need whatever camera you have. Unless you are upgrading an existing PiKon, you no longer need to buy the Camera Adaptor Kit.

You can find the .STL file for the adaptor here.

The PiKon High Quality Camera Adaptor is designed to upgrade the PiKon with the new Raspberry Pi camera with 12.3 megapixel, Sony IMX447R sensor. The adaptor  allows the new camera, which is slightly larger, to be mounted on the existing PiKon camera mount. This PiKon Platinum Hardware Kit now includes 8 extra nuts, bolts and washers for your 3D printed adaptor.
