Global Meteor Network... anybody?

Recently a friend from another forum pointed my attention to this project..
https://globalmeteornetwork.org/

Do we have anybody working with them here in Oz?
Have a look at this youtube link..

I think this will be my next project... DIY of course.


EDIT: a friend pointed me to this link:
http://fireballsinthesky.com.au/
I think I will try to contact them... they were very helpful to European branch of GMN.

If you have kept your last smart phone with a reasonable camera that has ISO exposure manual settings exposed...then you could try this.

Interesting...


BTW, I found this. Maybe it can be used for GMN?

Sounds like a good project . Great images and very interesting view of the meteors. . Have not finished the last project . I suppose I could use the zwo guide camera with its all sky lens in a glass dome. Come to think of it , I have a glass dome. Perhaps just a cable running in to a laptop would work just as well as the Pi.

Similar ideas here...

I contacted GMN, and lap running Linux (and their software) is definitely a possibility... I have one old Dell D610 doing nothing for years so I just have to try with bootable USB stick...

But, observatory in Mt Pleasant is a priority now...
And fixing 3D printer.. and fixing coffee machine.. and many other things....

So many projects, I know . The observatory is definitely a priority. I need to build a new house to put mine on.

That project sounds like a good one if , like me , you have a little roof space just outside a window with a good view of the Eastern sky and zenith as attached. Maybe a good use for a compustick or one of my many old laptops.
