"Earthshine blog"

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


Observing logPosted by Peter Thejll Jan 12, 2012 11:38AM
Moon observing with script Moonb.csv, which - wait for it - AUTOMATICALLY adjusts the dome position! Whohoo! AND the exposure time!

T near 4 C in dome so many dragged frames. RH v. low. Winds near 5 mph. Halo around Moon seems large.

Good to listen to the shutters etc via a Skype call from the telescope. Shutter is LOUD, when it works.

Mount is re-calibrated following yesterdays chrash into the kill-switch.

Image still jumps, but not as much as before - it seems to be at only the 5-10 pixel level now.
