First Nightime Tests of New Allsky Camera

Updated 3/05/02

These two images represent tracked and untracked exposures with the new enlarger stand All Sky Camera. The first image was taken by placing the assembly on top of the optical tube assembly of my 12.5 inch Newtonian pointed at the zenith, and exposing for 15 minutes. A 50mm f/2.8 lens was used. This image has north up, and has been mirror reversed to appear as the true sky would. Kodak E200 slide film was used, and scanned with a Nikon Coolscan LS2000 slide scanner. The glow of Payson is to the left, and the neighbors porch light at bottom.

The second image was taken by setting the camera on a four foot tall sonotube to get it off the ground, and a 30 minute exposure was used unguided to test the camera for use in aurora patrols. North is also at the top, but I rotated the camera to put the strut to the south.
