AllStar Weather Scripts

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

I was asked to see if I could port my Weather Scripts over to AllStar Nodes.  I have created a tar ball.  This will create a directory called “Weather” and should be extracted under /var/lib/asterisk.  (tar zxf AllStar_WeatherServipts_0.5.tar.gz)


Once extracted, you will find a README.txt file with instructions.  Please be aware that this release is not supported, but I will provide some help if needed as time permits as lately I am extremely busy.  I have this scripts up and running on my Allstar Node 29061 and seems to be solid.  Please refer to the following for more information:

CCD Imaging with the LX200 8 inch f/5

You need to upgrade your Flash Player

It’s that time of year where I like to take out the telescope. Bugs are dying off, less humidity, and nights are longer.  I have a pedestal mount that I attached during these months. I hopefully will build a simple enclosure to help expedite the setup time. The scope is remotely controlled and I used a CCD imager as my eyes. Even though this scope is up in age, it works well and guides well.  I’ll upload some of my astronomy projects as time permits.
