Not a broadcast announcement, but a note that the nearly 11 hour broadcast of the Messier Marathon is done!
98/110 targets, the rest blocked by the home and mountains. But I got all that were viewable.
One comment - I love this YouTube broadcasting method. Very easy to use and efficient. And it handles these long broadcasts without a problem.
Kudos to the MC X2 and Canon 60Da...and the LX850. Without this equipment the marathon goals could not have been met.
BTW, I won't do very many 11 hour broadcasts. This was a special event.
Thank-you everyone for stopping by throughout the night. I enjoyed the company!
Time for me to pass out...night y'all!
Caught some of this, will the youtube video stay up? If so please link it here, this was quite the effort and it would be great that we can have a recording to refer people to to see how EAA is done.
Thank-you Curtis - the Messier Marathon was definitely an endurance run I do not do very often. It was clearly a tag and go run, NOT a pretty picture run.
There were a few glitches with the equipment somewhat early on the run, but I was able to pull it off in spite of the Moon and clouds towards the end.

However when I get a chance I will be condensing the Messier Marathon to a 2-3 minute video. Easier watching for the audience lol. Stay tuned!
Two suggestions, one, viewers can always select 2x to get through it faster. Second, you can place links to each object both on the video and also in the comments in a list.
