All Sky Camera – advisory note

Hi Folks,

 

If you, like I, intend on permanently mounting the camera outdoors, it would be sensible to have a cover to put over it when the sun is shining (I know it doesn’t happen much , but ….. :)). A rain hat would also be useful.  I don’t know the long-term effect of the sun shining on the sensor all day but I think it’s better to be safe than sorry

I’m in the process of coming up with a suitable design but it will only cost a couple of pounds. 110mm drain pipe covers fit nicely, and so would half of a plastic ball plus some sort of hinge mechanism. The drain cover would need an outer skin of some sort and it would also help to keep the dome clean

I*’ll let you know

Cheers
