Tim Easterday Blogs About Experience with DMK FireWire Camera

Blogged by Jonathan Maron on May 14, 2007 and tagged with Sample Images, Moon.

In his Astronomy Blog, Tim Easterday of Buford, GA, USA talks about his experiences with a recently purchased DMK FireWire camera. Although he does not specify exactly which model he is deploying, he does say:

[...] I figured I would try my hand at some moon images. Upon getting the moon in view of my DMK firewire camera I could tell this would be difficult because the moon was shimmering and shaking all over the place due to below-average seeing. The DMK camera is capable of higher frame rates to help get around the problem with poor seeing conditions. I bought the camera initially for dual-use as an autoguiding camera and a planetary camera. The folks at ImagingSource added long-exposure capability so now my DMK is a triple threat!
