    Re: Star CN with DSLR Camera

    I wondered if there is any progress on this. I was going to try luna distance with a DSLR to get UTC. With descent image processing can you get better than pixel resolution. What is the trade of between using a fixed focus lens (which is easy to calibrate pixel to angle) and a zoom lens where you can have more pixels per minute of arc but presumably shot needs to include two known stars to calibrate.
