Im Back...
« on: 06:22:29, 30 October, 2017 »
Morning all.

Just to let you know I am back on the scene after a break of a few years (read 'young family').
We have moved about 1/4 mile from the last location now (mostly uphill) and now reside at 1200ft amsl with very little light pollution.
I have not even started building the new obsy yet but have got the all-sky camera up and operational now and the start of the new website:

Hope everyone is well. Keep you posted on developments!

Looking good.
I guess it's first time I see focus control for all sky camera.

I've taken it off now as it was not really necessary. What has made a HUGE difference is adding the fan and wirewound resistor to add about 14W of heat - cures the dew issues completely it seems.
