This repository contains the source and hardware for a High Altitude Balloon (HAB) tracker based around a Raspberry Pi Zero. The Pi Zero V1.3 includes a camera connector, so we can use a Sony IMX219 camera to return live images.

This design is optimised for weight-constrained payloads that use solar panels for power. If you're new to HAB or using a Latex weather balloon, then check out the awesome Pi in the Sky project instead!
