Re: How to trigger the camera based on ISS location

Thanks for all your help so far Dave. One of my student groups are using the Pi NOIR camera to identify peatlands. They wish to code for some target areas without peatland to act as a comparison. Rather than code for 50 separate control targets is it possible to code the camera to take a photo whils...

Re: Camera Questions: Mission Space Lab; Life on Earth

Hi Dave Thanks for that. It is the DuckDuckGo search box on this forum that doesn't work on the school network. My students are putting finishing touches to their code. One idea they have which they have been unable to code and I have been unable to solve is that in the 'downtime' between taking pho...

Apologies if these questions have been asked and answered but unfortunately DuckDuckGo does not work on the school network. 1. Some of the target areas my students are interested in photographing are at high latitudes. Above what line of latitude is beyond the range of the ISS camera? 2. Re: the ima...

Re: How to trigger the camera based on ISS location

Hi Dave Thanks for the reply. In the meantime the students solved the problem on how to display a message simultaneously with the camera taking a picture whilst the target is in range. The solution was to indent the block of 'If' code for the LED message further than the 'If' block to trigger the ca...

Re: How to trigger the camera based on ISS location

Hi Dave. Thank you for the assistance with the code. My students were very impressed with it and have been able to modify the code for multiple targets. However one problem that they haven't solved is for the Sense hat LED to simultaneously display a message when the target is in range (or the camer...
