A blog about a system to determine terrestrial albedo by earthshine observations. Feasible thanks to sheer determination.

Data status May 2012

Observing logPosted by Peter Thejll May 30, 2012 02:05PM
As of end of May 2012 we have about 25000 images labeled "MOON" - many of these contain 100 images each.

From these, after coadding all image-stacks, and by selecting only good data, we get 6871 single images (these are now either single observations or aligned 100-image bundles). These cover 55 separate nights from July 2011 to now.

Most of these 55 nights are observed in all filters.

None are science-grade SKE or ND images.

With an expected 200 good nights and a duty cycle of 20-25% we are not doing too badly!
