[00:16] <jcoxon> something for a rainy day:-p
[00:16] <SpeedEvil> Tagline for the website 'Could you please speak up a bit?'
[00:22] <edmoore> jcoxon: wow!
[00:22] <edmoore> you saw 'em!
[00:26] <jcoxon> indeed
[00:27] <jcoxon> weren't incredibly strong but enough to make me happy
[00:27] <jcoxon> had to fiddle with the camera - got some pics
[00:27] <jcoxon> i'm sure if i had time i could of improved them, just put all the settings to most sensitive and longest shutter time
[00:28] <jcoxon> so its a bit grainy
[00:32] <jcoxon> edmoore, http://flickr.com/photos/jcoxon77/3125977655/
[00:33] <edmoore> wow
[00:33] <edmoore> they look amazing
[00:33] <jcoxon> that isn't what you see
[00:33] <edmoore> we so need to do this
[00:33] <jcoxon> its not so green to the eye
[00:33] <edmoore> the eye is crap at picking up colour in low light anyway
[00:33] <jcoxon> thats 8second exposure 1200iso
[00:33] <jcoxon> whats amazing is that you get this hint of green
[00:33] <jcoxon> it doesn't look green, its rather white but you have this feeling its green
[00:34] <jcoxon> defintiely need a stabalised payload
[00:36] <jcoxon> and we'd need to retrieve the payload via dog sled
[00:36] <jcoxon> its the only way to travel in the snow
[00:37] <jcoxon> right night all, off to oslo tomorrow then home on tues...
