Observation Protocol

For this and all future events, we would like to standardize the video data files we would like each team to collect the following.  See our Full Campaign Observation Protocol Page for more details.

  1. Position Video
  2. Event Video
  3. Sky Field Video
  4. Dark Field Video

You should configure VirtualDub to save your files sequentially by using “Set Capture File” to save as C:/Users/RECON/Data/YYYYMMDD/YYYYMMDD_01. You should record the filenames and information about each file using the RECON Observation Logsheet.

Finder Charts

See RECON Event Detail Page for 01KO77 for finder chart provided by Marc Buie. Note that north is up in this automatically generated chart. The green rectangle represents the field of view of a standard RECON system, although the orientation of the rectangle does not match the orientation of the field at the time of the event. Marc will work on upgrading this feature in the future.
