    Explore some of the previous threads on camera CN here:


    Getting Hs out of a camera requires taking a set of UT timed images (at least 20) through the field of view of a prime fixed focal length lens. From a known position each image needs to have sight reduction performed to a zero intercept. Formula,graphs, and tables can then be made to be kept with the lens so that an Hs can be derived from any pixel height above the horizon using a minutes of arc per pixel value multiplied by the pixel height of the body above the horizon. I find the graph convenient to use on my lap top.
