Make long exposures at night and its perfect!

Post by luigi » Fri Jan 21, 2011 1:46 pm

Hi All,

I found YawCam and it's almost exactly what I needed for my project.
I'm building an all-sky cam with a webcam and a fisheye lens.

The only thing I'd need is to be able to do long-exposures (simulated from video) at night, otherwise I only get black images.

This app does it:

What it does is probably just stacking of the video stream to increase the exposure.

It would be awesome for YawCam to do this, you just configure
Start Long Exposures Time: 20:00
End Long Exposures Time: 06:00
Long Exposures Duration: 30s

Or something like that.

With that YawCam would work perfecly as an all-sky monitoring software, it can track clouds at daytime and it can track storms, lightning and stars at night time.

Thanks for reading!
Luis :D

It's a nice feature. I like the idea.
I'll add it to the suggestion list, but don't count on that it will be added in the nearest future...
