Comfort the Disturbed! Disturb the Comfortable!

We had an event at the college observatory, but Mother Nature had other plans. The sky was completely covered with clouds, so it wasn't visible. Still, nearly 100 people came out, and we talked about a lot of things related to astronomy, eclipses and stiff, and watched multiple live feeds of the eclipse from the UK, Africa and the east coast, and had a really good time. While I didn't get any shots of the eclipse, I managed to get some nice shots of the sunset, as well as a couple of pics of Carson City at night. I haven't taken the time to process the images yet, but I'll see about doing that later today.

Seen a few good shots of the Moon.

My fav was a time lapse of my mates 'scope tracking the Moon. He setup a camera to a Raspberry Pi taking 6 sec shots. It's on my phone. Will post if you would like?

Looks cool, I always like the way you can see the stars moving. Must be an expensive bit of kit.

If you check out the vid he gives what equipment he uses...

Video created from images taken with my Raspberry Pi V2 and PiCam NoIR using Meteotux long exposure software.

£30 for the Pi (+£20 case etc). Couldn't find a uk price for the camera but it's £23 for the non IR one and $30 for the linked one. Software appears to be free.

Trying to keep the stars stationary is more expensive  thumbsup That requires the scope in the pic. (£3000)

Yeah it was the scope I was thinking of.

I watched it here and didn't think to click through to YouTube...

The rest of the gear to make the video is surprisingly affordable. Might have to try that one day.
