I am new to video meteoring.
I bought a Watec WAT902HS off of ebay after reading some about video meteor
capturing. Later, I see that some suggest this isn't the best camera but I
am stuck with trying to make it work.
Has anyone used this camera for video meteor capture? What is the setup
My equipment is poor but I intend to improve it.
METEOR/PPB capture board
old compaq 400mhz pent 96 meg running win 98
I was using a FC-62C camera and getting a few meteors each nite. I could
only see 1 or 2 bright stars so I never could calibrate it but it does run.
With the watec I only captured 2 meteors in 2 nites.
Yesterday I took the Watec apart and found:
3 switches on the right board - two labeled s1 and s2, the other sw - no
gang of 8 dip switches on left board- all in off position
On the Watec website I signed up and can't find the 902HS I downloaded
manuals from some of the other 902s but none have this switch arrangement.
Any help would be welcome!
Thank You in advance!
