Thanks, Chris

Thanks Curtis.   Sorry had some technical issues.    Have to completely re-excavate my buried USB cables.   Just becoming too intermittent!

Planning on broadcasting tonight with A7s/AT8IN/CGEM/Starsense/Etc..

Going to be wirelessly controlling A7s with iPhone 6s and sharing the screen. Planning on both youtube/google hangout & NSN simulcast. I'll update this post when I am set up. It should be in 2 hours (10 pm PST).

AT8IN is collimated and balanced, fan is on, waiting for darkness now. 

*forgot to add, bought a second battery for use with the A7s (have another from my a5100) both are charging at the moment. Going to test broadcast in a bit.

PS I would try my iPhone 6s directly if only I could find my iPhone holder! Once I locate it, be sure I'll be evaluating Nightcap Pro again because it looks like there are some new features.

 

Just finished polar alignment, starting starsense, so far NSN isn't picking up my broadcast.

 

On Youtube now!

If things go according to plan, my colleague Cliff and I will have our first ever live broadcast from Mauna Kea, Hawaii this Thursday starting at around 8 PM HST (11PM PDT).  It will be on nightskiesnetwork.com and our channel is called White Mountain Skies.  We'll probably be using the SX Ultrastar C with a C14 Edge and Hyperstar.  

 

This is will be the first time either of us has done this, so please be patient with us.  We plan on doing a broadcast every Thursday night, so we should get better at it as time goes on.

 

Hope you can join us.

 

Thanks,

 

Don

Great to hear Don! Will you be simulcasting on Youtube or recording it for later repeat viewing?

Wishing you the best Don (I'm sure you will have great broadcasts) but a 3am (ADT) start isn't going to work for me very often.  :mad:

 

Now if you ever get the opportunity for a late night Hawaii time broadcast I'm in while I'm eating my Cheerios  :lol: .

Hello Don,

 

   I look forward to your first cast on Nightskiesnetwork.com and I would suggest doing a test first with any camera and just showing some scenery. I also sent you a PM on how to cast hopefully that will help you. 

 

Thanks again,

Joe

We will start about 06:00 UTC (Friday).  The broadcast will last for about two hours.  No simulcast or recording.  This is our first attempt at this, so we're trying to keep it simple.

 

We're going to start with M66 showing the recent SN.  We will also show as an inset the M66 image Cliff captured with the same equipment on May 26th, two days before the SN was discovered.  It is visible.

 

We will probably next move to the southern skies to view M83, Centaurus A, and Omega Centauri.  We'll finish with the summer nebulae in our eastern sky.  If there's more time, we will take requests.  We need to finish by 10PM (08:00 UTC) when things are closed up.  We may go longer in the future if we use our own equipment.  I sometime bring my Evo 6 with Hyperstar to do some wider field viewing.  This Thursday evening we will be using the SX Ultrastar C on a C14 Edge with Hyperstar.

 

Please feel free to post any questions or suggestions here.

 

Don

Will do, Curtis.  We may go there right after M66.  Cliff will love this.  He's big on galaxy clusters.  I checked the image scale and its looks good.
