15:37 <efc> Nice dome! Where is that?

15:41 <quail> very close to my new property

15:42 <efc> I'm sure they'd like to hear about it in ##astronomy if its a telescope like it looks, even more if its in the southern hemisphere..

15:42 <quail> efc: this the site

15:43 <Romulus> Title: Stockport Observatory (at

15:43 <PovAddict> is the southern hemisphere *better* for that stuff?

15:43 <efc> You see different stuff from the southern hemisphere

15:44 <quail> PovAddict: we just rock down here :-P

15:44 <efc> And the northern hemisphere already has tons of scopes at every level

15:44 <PovAddict> yeah I know that

15:44 <PovAddict> ahh that explains it :)

15:44 * PovAddict high-fives quail

15:44 <efc> Southern hemisphere you're pretty much talking NZ and Australia, the rest is like a Mad Max movie

15:44 <efc> Apologies to PovAddict :)

15:45 * quail accepts PovAddict hi 5

15:45 <efc> Is that an amateur observatory quail?

15:45 *** axxum has quit IRC

15:46 <efc> oh, i could actually read your link

15:46 *** axxum has joined #boinc

15:46 <quail> efc: no, but I do have a big interest in it tho

15:46 <efc> Eventually, i would like to build my own, of substantial size

15:47 <quail> efc: I want to do the same and have it computer operated

15:47 <quail> on a portable level

15:47 <PovAddict> efc: with your copious free time and money?

15:48 *** efc3 has joined #boinc

15:49 <PovAddict> did my question kill your connection?

15:49 <efc3> Sorry, dropped

15:49 <quail> efc: I want to do the same and have it computer operated

15:49 <quail> on a portable level

15:49 *** axxum has quit IRC

15:49 <efc3> Dunno where i got cut off, was saying I was working on a 127mm refractor

15:49 <quail> we not get that

15:50 <efc3> We discuss that kind of stuff a lot on ##astronomy.. mostly talk, less building hehe

15:50 <efc3> I built it out of PVC pipe

15:50 <quail> efc: you last line => 06:16:55 < efc> Eventually, i would like to build my own, of substantial size

15:50 <efc3> No mount yet, and have some problems getting the focuser mounted.

15:50 *** kathryn_ has quit IRC

15:51 <efc3> Got a real deal on the 127mm objective

15:51 <PovAddict> [16:46] <efc> Eventually, i would like to build my own, of substantial size

15:51 <PovAddict> [16:47] <PovAddict> efc: with your copious free time and money?

15:51 <efc3> More money than time

15:51 <efc3> Also need a place out in the boonies with less light polution

15:51 <PovAddict> inverse teenager?

15:52 <efc3> Don't have time to spend the money

15:52 <quail> efc: I up for donations here, and I send you pics

15:52 <PovAddict> &linux

15:52 <Romulus> PovAddict: No idea!

15:52 <PovAddict> &whatis linux

15:52 <Romulus> PovAddict: "linux" could be

15:52 <PovAddict> &factoids change linux 1 s/10.6/10.11/

15:52 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

15:53 <quail> efc: and when I get proper nets were moving to you can have full access to the device

15:53 <efc3> If you are serious, the ##astronomy guys have wanted to do a channel scope for some time

15:54 <efc3> They looked at renting one but it was very expensive / month

15:54 <efc3> More for universities

15:56 <quail> efc: let me get up yo the new poperty, and then can work from there

15:57 <efc3> Buying something?

15:57 <PovAddict> current status

15:57 <Romulus> <> (at

15:57 <quail> efc: I be up there by the end the month

15:58 <quail> efc: my only prob, is I only got 3g wireless were I am going to

15:59 <efc3> That does tend to be a problem with a good site

15:59 <efc3> At a really good one you're lucky to have dialup

15:59 <quail> with good funding I can do satellite

15:59 <efc3> Running water.. electricity.. etc

16:01 <quail> efc3: I am on 3g wireless atm just chewing up bw

16:01 <efc3> It does become pretty expensive setting all that stuff up, so I doubt the community would keep you funded

16:01 <efc3> Though you could possibly rent some time on it

16:01 <quail> and it damn slow to my own adsl2+ connection

16:02 <quail> efc3: yeah that what I am going to work out with them

16:04 <efc3> They did some remote control experiments

16:05 <quail> efc3: this part the lug I working on =>

16:05 <Romulus> Title: Pastezone (at

16:05 *** Auctus has joined #boinc

16:05 <quail> efc3: which has little my plans involved

16:06 <quail> efc3: my main control stuff be by amateur radio / laptop

16:07 *** efc has quit IRC

16:07 <efc3> That would be cool

16:08 <efc3> I got my ham license a year ago, never used yet

16:08 <quail> efc3: you do have one, cool :-)

16:09 <quail> efc3: you got the gear for intercontenial callings?

16:09 <efc3> Nope, just have a couple shortwave receivers

16:09 <efc3> I do have echolink though

16:09 <quail> efc3: cool

16:10 <quail> efc3: pm me your callsign please

16:11 <quail> efc3: I put a special call out for when on high power transmitter

16:11 <quail> +you

16:12 <quail> at the new place it take a bit before get the antenna up and stuff

16:14 <efc3> I don't have much experience.. are you able to work north america, europe, etc from there most of the time?

16:15 <quail> efc3: I can work most the world on amateur radio

16:16 *** Eythan has joined #boinc

16:16 <efc3> Mostly I hear north america here, but thats to be expected

16:17 <quail> oh :-/

16:19 <efc3> Don't have a good antenna or location

16:20 <efc3> How far between you and the location you'd be controlling?

16:26 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:28 <quail> efc3: I don't have any ham radio on  remote ocntrol atm

16:28 <quail> cause most the st I work with is ww2 stuff

16:30 <efc3> just wondering cuz we're limited to 300 baud for HF in the US except for 1200 baud on 10 meter

16:31 <efc3> 19.6k on higher freqs

16:31 <efc3> You could control with 300 baud.. but not send pics back

16:35 <efc3> Well, maybe in ascii

16:38 <quail> efc3: I mostly on 40 meters
