PiKon is a 3D printable telescope project which runs with a Raspberry Pi camera to greatly reduce the cost for astronomers. A PiKon telescope costs around £100 and performs as well as telescope systems costing ten times that figure.

The BBC published an article online after attending a demonstration by Mark himself. The original article can be read here - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-29244429
