This is pretty neat - I changed the software I was using for my Sky Camera and now it does some extra things (meteor detection being one of the neat ones) - but this is really handy for my astro photography stuffs - it's monitoring the Sky Quality during each 30 second image then reports it into the graph and via MQTT. In theory I can (with some testing) set this up to pause the imaging on the actual telescope if I'm asleep and clouds appear 🤔
Much prefer my cats to people...
I did fix my Glamon machine today though! So I achieved something off of my to-do list for a change. Admittedly I had to still the GPS antenna off of one of the KiwiSDR's to so - which reminded me I didn't add fixing those to my to-do list - but at least I have proven the GPS board itself is fine, unlike the GPS antenna which I can only assume cooked with the zappy zap strike near by like a few other things a wee while back. Oh well. Also another thing I need to move to a better spot 😅
Oh the max range is 430.59KM in useful distance measurements. Not a bad effort for a half arsed install against the side of the house with poor quality coax I figure.
