Thanks for posting the videos. It was a great meeting, very enjoyable and well attended. My thanks to everyone involved, particularly Hazel, the Sigma crew and Lorna and Helen at UHIM.

After giving my talk on monitoring the sky with video cameras I headed north to install one of these low-cost cameras at Denis Buczynski’s observatory at Portmahomack. This has a fantastic northern horizon and the camera is intended to capture NLC and aurora. A couple of live clips from last night show a very nice, active aurora with the foreground illuminated by moonlight:

A still made from stacking 128 video frames is attached. It shows how well these little cameras work.
