The webcam is slowly failing. The internal gears that allow the camera to tilt up and down are wearing out, allowing a limited upwards movement. Lately there has been very little of the southern sky in the image due to this. Today Ean and I went out to adjust the cam and discovered the stripped gears. For a temporary fix we shimmed the entire camera housing so that a greater portion of the sky is visible. The downside is that when you pan left or right there is a noticeable arc in the movement.

We need a new camera. Robert Mudd said he would purchase a new high definition webcam, if someone would take charge of the installation and connection to the club's website. Is anyone interested in doing this? Ean and I can help with the physical part of the installation.

Thank you,

Mike
