Full moon

Today, there was a full moon on a clear night-sky. So, I took this photo with my new DSLR camera using a tripod to avoid the vibrations when going handheld. I would say that this came out well.

Objective: 140 mm
Aperture: F14
Shutter: 1/125
ISO: 100

New gear!

I decided to upgrade the camera I use for my photograph-birds-in-my-garden project. Instead of using a smartphone, I invested in the entry-level Nikon D3500 DSLR camera. The quality of the pictures are of course very much improved 🙂

First photo with the new camera

A simple weather station

I decided to build a Raspberry Pi based weather station inspired of how other people did this. The items used to build the station was:

  • Raspberry Pi 4
  • BME280 Temperature Humidity Pressure Sensor
  • DS18B20 Temperature sensor
  • 5V 4A 20W Switching Power Supply
  • Python 2.7
  • Adafruit Python libraries for BME280
  • MySQL Python Connector

Everything is mounted outdoors in a natural ventilated IP66 rated case as seen (without the lid) below:

The weather data collected are published on this site here
