Hi all, While Observing the Lyrids Meteor on 21/4/15
I got an idea, to hook up a Bresser monocular to a mini dvr.
I purchased the Monocular some years ago, and has got little use until now.
.The image quality in my opinion is poor with horizontal banding obvious, and annoying,
However Hooked up to a mini dvr, image quality was very much improved,so
I set the equipment up on a Atlas tripod pointed it a Vega, and more or less
left it recording for the full session,
On the+ side, weights less than 500 g including the Dvr
2xAA batteries lasted the session.
Setup time 2min
No problems with dew in the objective.
Good for estimating seeing for astrophotography.
I give this setup the thumbs up, a go anywhere device. Also good for spotting nocturnal banjo players. diddle um dum dum dum dum dum dum.
On the - side the Dvr is quite hungry at about 16 mb per min, @ 15 frames sec @ full Resolution (500x582)
Below are image setup, and a dropdox link. thanks for looking.
