AllSky What is it?
An all sky camera is a device designed to take pictures of the entire sky over a certain amount of time, usually to monitor meteor showers or other astronomical phenomena. I built mine to record a movie of the entire night. I also upload a star trail photo of the night. My hardware is a Raspberry PI4 2gb, a HQ Pi Cam and a dew heater that is controled with a temp sensor. Every thing can be bought online such as Amazon but for the Camera.

The lens I am using is:Arecont Vision CS-Mount 1.55mm Fixed Focal Megapixel Lens. You can find them on Amazon but do a Google search for the best price.
