There will be two member presentations at the next meeting: 


Light Pollution Filter Usage with a OSC Camera from a Light Polluted site by Eddie Hunnell 

Eddie will compare different filters using representative galaxy and nebula from a light polluted site.


“All Sky Camera Control System” by Vern Raben. Vern will again try to give a presentation about a design for an all sky camera. Basic idea is to use a Raspberry PI3 processor to capture and transmit images to the LAS website. Vern will demonstrate camera control utilizing publish/subscribe messaging. The control messages are transmitted using web socket protocol which may be used with normal web server connections. This technology enables the camera to be securely controlled locally or remotely using web browsers, cell phone apps, or desktop programs.



The meeting will be at the IHOP Restaurant, 2040 Ken Pratt Boulevard, Longmont. Please join us for coffee, dinner, or just desert around 6 pm; The general meeting and presentation will begin at 7 pm.
