Comments to AllSky group on Facebook

I bought this Arducam MIPI camera for the Raspberry Pi. It is 4672*3496 and the best that anyone seems to have gotten is 1 frame every 10 seconds. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W6LTFZC. I think it needs a $200 computer, not a $100 one. And some assembler or C programming. But then look at the time lapses posted by

Why did the Google molecular weight of methane come out as 20.067?

Hello, I was working on atmospheric composition and asked google methane pubchem molecular weight It came up with 20.067 which traces to https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/2H4_Methane Now I am tired, but carbon is 12.011 and hydrogen is 1.008*4, so the total should be closer to 16.011 Is this page supposed to be deuterated?  12.011 + 2*4.0282035557 = 20.067407

Tweets about lossless sharing of astronomical images

Related: A desktop photo scanner can get 6400 dots per inch over 8.5*11 inches. That is 3.82976  GigaPixels with 32 bit colors. See also: PetaPixelProject.com with many 10 to 100 GigaPixel images. They use “Atlas Browser Based Viewer” that seems to work.  I am not recommending it, just noting they seem to be able to

Comment on video Colorful sunrise / convection at sunset – 25 June 2020

UND Atmospheric Sciences – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVvaJnSsri0 No numbers? No radar correlations? No models? No satellite correlations? No corrections for sun angle and lighting? No temperatures or pressures or wind speeds? No science? I expected more from “Atmospheric Sciences”. At least put two cameras and do a little 3D estimation. Frame to frame correlations and velocities? Estimate

Comment on Virtual Family Trees for Ancestry and the Internet

Even though it might seem extra work, I might log into another account, but rather than make me the manager, I leave them as owner and manager, and invite myself as a DNA collaborator, and invite myself to their tree as Editor. Life is long and the people you help should have some measure of
