NOAA Satellite Image @ 17:53 – Thunder storm (MB) enhancement




Electronic telescope focuser

I have been working on an electronic remote telescope focuser to improve precise focusing when doing astrophotography.  It is based on a standard RC servo and an Arduino Micro controller board.  So, now I just have to wait for a clear evening to test it!


Contact us: BBM for IOS not working so lekker!

Contacting us via BBM has not been very successful, I have received a lot of BBM invites but sometimes I only get a notification and have no option to add the contact.   If you have not been successful in adding me as a BBM contact, you can try again or contact me via skype or email.

Satellite Image: From the South pole

This satellite image is composed from several satellite passes over the South Pole … quite an interesting view of the earth!

This view is very useful in winter time when cold fronts are approaching the western/southern Cape Province
