Re: Zoom Meeting - Any Interest

Hello everyone... The Zoom meeting was great!!! It was an excellent opportunity to see everyone live (in the virtual sense) and meet some members for the first time and re-acquaint with others that COVID has prevented in person meeting. Thanks to everyone who help set up the session and those who jo...

Nice to see your report James...the activity from Friday continues!!!

A few breaks in the cloud here yesterday but nothing long enough to justify trying anything myself.

Did the entire full disk seem dark or were you questioning the NW portion being darker than the rest of the image?

Re: Zoom Meeting - Any Interest

The Zoom platform allows live video and audio with each participant who has it enabled...basically like a conference table with each person having a small window with their camera feed showing. It can be a simple discussion between participants or there is the ability to share your desktop if the se...

It is somewhat a personal judgment I suppose. This image is considerably darker in ...

Oct 23rd Images

Good day everyone... I had a week of mostly cloud and drizzle but was very happy to see clear skies yesterday (Friday) and a chance to get to the scope with an early lunch. Mother nature also rewarded us with a summer type of day...temps in the low 20's C, and an awesome electrical storm as a cold f...

Re: Zoom Meeting - Any Interest

Alexandra...

Posting the link will save having to collect e-mails and sent invites, so that will make it easy.

After the first session we will all have a better idea of what if anything, needs to be tweaked.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Re: Zoom Meeting - Any Interest

Stu and all... That certainly works for me, and can accommodate changes should they be needed. With the global scale of members, the ability to host a time an ideal fit for all is next to impossible as you mentioned. One club I'm in can't get consensus for day/time for people in a 30 mile radius :lo...

Re: Zoom Meeting - Any Interest

Hi Alexandra and all... If you are willing to host the first session Alexandra we can work around the inability to share desktops to start with. It will be better from a participant standpoint not to have to log in each time the session expires in the free mode of Zoom. If after the initial meeting ...

Re: Zoom Meeting - Any Interest

Hi everyone... It sounds like there is lots of interest in the idea of a zoom session. I guess there is a lot to organize but we have time to sort it out over the next few days. The first critical factor is finding someone will to host among us. If anyone wishes to volunteer that would be great, esp...
