Title: Fantastic video chat program with live astro-casts
Post by: Daniel on Nov 07, 2008, 05:40:42
Hi All, I've just spent a cloudy evening watching live real time images of M42, Flame nebula, Iris, Sculptor galaxy M45 and M31.

I came accross a board where a user mentioned he was going to do a live broadcast using his hyperstar and live video tonight and it turns out everybody on this video chat board is doing astronomy.

The images were incredible, I've never seen a DSO in a live image before, I also watched one guy touring the moon with a 16" SCT.

Anyway, it was all very cool, and it seems as though this happens most nights, so If you fancy having a look just download sparkcast from http://www.sparkcast.tv/ (http://www.sparkcast.tv/) and see if any astonomers are broadcasting.
