    Just put the Atik software on and it now has 33.5gb free. Even allowing for a few Gb for windows it still has plenty of room.

    Images are stored directly onto a 32gb Toshiba memory stick and processed using APP on a laptop.

    Also from memory I thought it was a 8gb ram but its 4gb. The model is a NEO Z83-4 Plus with 4GB DDR3L + 64GB eMMC 5.1 windows 10 pro (64bit

    I have to load some more software on it so will report back. I must stress that its a command and control pc only with no image processing capabilities other than that offered by Sharpcap.

    From memory it has the following astro software installed

    Sharpcap 3.2, ANSVR plate solving, PHD2, EQMOD, Hitecastro focuser, and C du Ciel

    I use both. The NUC states 19 volt DC but runs quite happily on 12 volts. The Minix has a better WiFi range due to its external antenna. The NUC is an i3 with 4gb ram and a 250 gb SSD. The minix is 8gb ram and a 64gb SSD. Both run windows 10 pro and I use Windows remote desktop to connect and control.

    It only appears in the first luminance sub, But its trailed and is clearly not a hot pixel

    We took 2 x 300 seconds in luminance, RGB. 20 flats and used library darks 

    Update….I am travelling up to Thirsk tomorrow evening and will take a look at all the images we took. Will post update.

    I am new to meteor detection so I appreciate the data posting. At least it looks like I am getting reasonable results. I tried the auto recording software HROFFT but the results I got did not compare with my visual analysis of the recorded echo’s.

    Thanks.

    As its a military installation my guess was that they would not divulge operational details so my best hope was that others monitoring the station would confirm that it was down.

    Many thanks for responding

    I have added  a picture of what I see on the screen which I am interpreting as a meteor echo.

    The audio gives a “ping” if its a small echo and the larger ones more of a “Pheeeeuuuu”
