Comments to DeltaTech.ca about moving cameras, lossless data, global needs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXClDkUunDk https://deltatech.ca/contact-us/ I am following the development of live webcams on the Internet, particularly all sky cameras that can be used for research, sharing and collaboration. Weather, astronomy, comets, lightning, clouds – many things. I track all sensor networks as their integration is one of the fastest growing industries on the Internet. You have good

Comment to Allsky Camera Facebook group about context and daytime uses of cameras

https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696/permalink/877591389495080/ I am looking at daytime uses of all sky cameras. Satellite images are a bit too bulky and not enough resolution for correlations. Need multiple cameras to recover 3D of clouds. I have seen groups aiming at comets, planes, clouds, rain, sky color, daytime astronomy (is possible), sun and moon tracking, shadows, reflections, multispectral,

Active Magnetosphere and Planetary Electrodynamics Response Experiment – website status?

Robin, Haje, I am looking at global sensor networks, and got to magnetotelluric arrays.  For background I was reading about natural signals that can be used for calibration and reference and came to http://ampere.jhuapl.edu/index.html To be explicit, I was at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birkeland_current and clicked on the link to Project Ampere that took me to https://web.archive.org/web/20050211120508/http://dysprosium.jhuapl.edu/  Then

Comment on Orion Nebula without a star tracker video

Orion Nebula WITHOUT a Star Tracker or Telescope, Start to Finish, DSLR Astrophotography https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuMZG-SyDCU I am trying to estimate the time and cost for myself. Today is 19 Jun 2021 for me. Amazon link to Canon EOS 5D Mark III body only is $899.99 + shipping and tax – never used Canon, lots of screens

Comment on Electrical Resistivity Tomography and Induced Polarization

https://www.researchgate.net/post/Is_there_any_paper_scientific_document_that_shows_how_much_mA_is_typically_considered_as_the_input_current_in_the_ERT_and_IP_fields2 Mostafa Ebrahimi,   When you ask questions like this, spell out what all the acronyms. IP is mostly “intellectual property” or other things on the Internet.   “electrical resistivity tomography” “induced polarization” gives 42,100 entries on Google search. That means it is fairly mature.  If you are actively surveying a large region you might

Comment on Geomagnetically Induced Current Data

https://www.researchgate.net/post/Please_I_want_to_enquire_How_can_I_download_Geomagnetically_induced_current_data_GIC_of_one_minute_time_resolution_data Alaa Mohamed, Today I was just reviewing “global conductivity models” and “geomagnetically induced currents” for the Internet Foundation. The common practice seems to be to use 1D and 3D conductivity models, then use the fairly dense magnetotelluric (MT) arrays for the changing magnetic fields that induce the changes. There are LOTS of electromagnetic datasets.

Comment on Lucky Imaging and global telescope networks

£700 vs £7,000,000: Astrophotography Shoot Out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rCyC3_YIME Ryan Fay? Your link in the description is broken (luckyimage) should probably be https://www.astrobiscuit.com/deepspaceluckyimaging There are better ways to combine images from many different sensors. You talked about hundreds?, thousands?, millions?, billions? of people combining images to improve earth surface imaging. Take the human out of the loop.

Trying to suggest better ways to use live webcams, Contact Form limited

WMAC Trentham Camera 1 Live Stream I came across your live webcam at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjYnPVzwYbk Wellington Model Aeroplane Club, Radio control aircraft and multirotors (drones) at https://wmac.org.nz/ Please put a link to your organization below in the description. Also tilt the camera up and show the sky not that roof. It is OK to have tilt.

Comment on Live YouTube video of Meteor echoes

LIVE Radio Meteor Echoes Stream from Scotland Looking at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaNkjWkpOdE Should it say “MegaHertz”? not “Hz” Just searching for “radio meteor echoes” I see 60 MHz and 50 MHz. 3.5 MHz, 29 MHz, 1300 MHz, 1.98 MHz, 143.05 MHz. Seems like “it depends” but no one has written it down in a concise rule book.

Comment on Houston Astronomical Society Star Parties – Elon Musk All Sky Cameras

Steve and Amelia Goldberg, If Houston Astronomical Society (HAS) would share recordings online, then star parties can be continuous and world wide. Soon, in human terms, there will be people observing from the far side of the moon and from Mars. So I hope Houston Astronomical Society will be a world leader in online community
