Live Telescope

Postby Vince » Fri Sep 06, 2013 12:00 pm

Hi,

Not sure of the logistics etc involved in this, or even if its feasible, but Ill mention the idea anyway and hope its not already been suggested.

I think it would be great to maybe have some of the higher members of Shed (with the ability) to do live video link-up from their telescopes. Could maybe do it once a week or monthly. I think it would be great for new members with little experience to maybe request 'Mars' as an example, and see what it looks like through a powerful scope live! It goes without saying any requests would have to 'in the sky' at the time. So maybe the caster could do a checklist of possible objects that newbies could request.

Like I said, not sure how this would work in principle with broadband lag, bad weather etc, but in theory I'd love to see this.

Regards & Thanks
Vince
