Single Status Update
It was great to bump into you at Astrofest. Thank you so much for your most generous offer.
Remembering to changing four fiddly timers every month is a right royal PITA. A simple Windows program/cheap USB relay solution that calculates local sunrise and sunset and allows the user the initiate switching of the relay at user-defined times before/after sunrise and sunset would take quite a bit of hassle out of operating an automated meteor video capture system. It could also be useful for automated operation of all sky cameras.
If it transpires that this project may be feasible, I'll be happy to send you a couple of the relays to play with.
