Lightning shutter trigger 2.0 - end of field testing

eclairWe got a thunderstorm on Wednesday. My son took a few additional lightning pictures with the flash detector. Again, all flashes he saw were detected. So, we can consider that our field test is closed, and successful Smile.

Give me some time to clean source code, hardware schematics and documentation, and I'll open-source the project. Stay tuned.

My own burn down chart

chartLike many software developers loving development, I spend a large part of my personal time on development projects. Some of them originate from relatives' or friends' requests. When they ask me for a delivery date, I try to commit to the date I give them. Name this pride or simply good project management Wink. But in any case I have the need of a (simple) tool for project planning and tracking.

Lightning shutter trigger 2.0 - another picture

flashYesterday, we got a thunderstorm. Usually, when people are on vacation, they prefer a nice weather. This is not the case for us Smile. We took the car, and drove to a place a few kilometers southwest of Ancelle, the small village where we are staying for a week, in south of french Alps.

Our flash detector triggered several times, but we got only two pictures. Only one displays a flash. The other one was triggered by a distant intra-cloud lightning, and it's hardly visible on the picture. Other detections came from flashes in our back (yes!) or on our sides. Conclusion: I'm happy with sensitivity of this version of the trigger Smile.
