Live All Sky Camera
Written by Richie Jarvis   
Thursday, 30 November 2017 21:34

Recently, I have been playing with my Altair Astro GP-Cam (They don't make it anymore, but it has been replaced with this unit: https://www.altairastro.com/Altair-GPCAM-AR0130-MONO-Planetary-Camera-Auto-Guider.html).  It came with a 150 degree lens, so I have mounted inside a cheap £3 dome, and placed it outside South Common Observatory.  

At the moment, the stream is being captured on Windows 10 with Altair Capture, which adds the date/time stamp. From there, it is streamed to Xeoma CCTV software via a simple VLC desktop RTSP stream.  Xeoma then converts to MJPEG for display here, and overlays the compass.  

I have been trying to get it working on YouTube, and have had some success.  Recently it has been suffering from stutter problems, so I have disabled for the moment.  To be fixed.....
Another problem is that the camera requires day/night settings changes to compensate for brightness.
