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


Observing logPosted by Peter Thejll Oct 02, 2011 08:56AM
Skyflats, Moon and Altair.

Skyflats started too late and are not well exposed - I started at 6:13, Sunset was close to 6:20 so should perhaps start closer to 6:00 next time.

Moon was run through various settings of SKEs and the KEDFs as well as the NDs - but images appear strange - as if the devices did not set right or the input data was wrong.

Altair was imaged through variable cloudiness allowing us to see both very clear PSFs and the misty PSFs.

The NAS was acting up - images were not being received on it. Had to reboot.
