All-Sky camera part of the Europen Network for fireball detection

The All-sky camera has now been in use since June 2021, and made during it’s operation almost 3 million pictures on a permanent basis day/night.

As from today it got the designation EN904, as part of the European Network for fireball detection.

Hans Betlem performed a calibration of the camera images, so it can be used for measurements in case fireballs are detected.

The Fujinon lens combined with the ASI183MC has a lot of aberration near the horizon.

Mars 26 december 2022

Despite hard wind gusts, that pushed aside the Mars image in the small ROI, and clouds passing over completely blocking any image, with a seeing that was variable but never very good, the telescope caught a few Mars’s last night.

Meanwhile a nice winter sky was visible with sqm values above 20,50 and a hint of the winter mily way

A beautiful June night

some impressions…

Moon setting with a nice earthshine
An unfortunate discovery: water tower of Bierbeek illuminated again, upwards into the sky! which idiot’s idea was that, given the expensive energy and ecological awareness we are supposed to have!
