"The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom, and the unknown. Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one is to lose sight of the three."

Quote:I have a question, Are these USB or IP based cameras? Or do you need to run a coax cable for them?
Quote:Do the domes need to be glass or acrylic and what about a rain-x coating of sorts, any ideas
Quote: minimum of 4GB RAM and 750GB
Quote: Quote: minimum of 4GB RAM and 750GB That's the problem; mine is 3GB RAM and 320 GB HD. I know I can add more RAM, & get another external HD (already have one for backups), but hate to go thru all that. I'll try to find a skycam that I can afford somewhere.
Quote:OK, that makes sense. I caught another big one last night. Man you never know what is going on overhead when your in the bed!!
Quote: Carol.....the comp I have mine on is 2.5 years old. As long as you have a minimum of 4GB RAM and 750GB of available HD you should be good to go.

Quote:Woohoo! My Allsky camera arrived!! It came yesterday nicely packaged. It's like Christmas all over again. I will make a couple of tweaks to it before I get it installed: Flock the walls of the camera bay - currently untreated Sand and paint the exterior Replace the extension cord with a longer heavier unit make a mount to attach to an old chimney Once that is done the rest should be a snap.
