You gotta love the automatic gain setting on that rocketcam...

EDIT: Lol, "execute payload auto-gain OFF" "compiling, 0 errors, 0 warnings... GO to send"

That's what I call real-time commanding!

That is the point smile.gif It's slow and painfull at the moment - but if it works and I can run it back at 10x speed or something - it'll be a hell of a view smile.gif

Sounds like they're sending up commands to tweak the cameras.

Apparently, I've gotten spoiled with Kaguya images.
Still, this is pretty awesome.

Some people will say that there are better-looking images from telescopic observations. This is true, of course, but the images we're getting have a great value - we see that the cameras are functional and working well. In October we're going to see much more.

Managed to quickly create a LCROSS realtime simulation:

I have not yet been able to verify the trajectory data but the output seems reasonable

Currently taking a screen shot once a minute, to connect all together later as a gif tongue.gif Don't know how it'll work out.

Call me crazy, but these commanding sequences and readbacks on the fly are more exciting than the visual light camera. Looks like the auto-gain OFF was for NIR cameras only.

Heck I'm not complaining. I don't see this part of the moon very often with my telescope anyway laugh.gif
