I fought tooth and nail to get this image! Well...perhaps I didn't use my teeth...nor my nails....but it was a battle! Highly variable transparency made focus more guesswork than usual and it there was a lot of exposure/gain adjusting to try and keep the histogram from getting too high or low. Seeing actually seemed pretty good, but I'm sure focus could have been better. Image is 6 x 3 minutes in WinJupos, individual images are even more rugged than this!

Good work! Oval BA getting ever closer to the GRS.
Does Firecapture have an auto histogram setting that adjusts the exposure or gain automatically for you? Thought I read that somewhere but never used it myself.

It does, but it doesn't work for color cams recording in raw mode.... (yet).

 

[Nice result, Steve! Been a challenging year for us all in the US....]
