    Yep, when I am not integrating, i.e. in this last batch of videos from me,
    exposure is 1/60s..
    It'll be a long time before I ever try to record straight to the computer. 
    Recording to tape first is the only way to go for flawless data.

    Morning Derek
    Another night of heavy rain...... sun now trying to make an appearance.
    I dont have any plans to update the manual as so many changes/improvements 
    have been made to HEAVENSAT during the past five years that it will 
    basically require an entire re-write and even then I would probably miss 
    some features.
    What exposure are you using for your video images - 1/60th sec ?   Im 
    thinking about changing my video system and instead of recording to DVD go 
    instead direct to hard drive - I have a digital Satellite TV card (COMPRO 
    S350) in my one pc which has provision for S-video input so will be able to 
    record at good quality and not too enormous a file - computer technology has
    improved a lot since I started doing video tracking about a decade ago !
