maybe I will tweet

Katrina has starting using a very neat service where you can send a tweet of an astronomical target and a telescope-camera system (one we saw Dave Lane shopping for at NEAF in 2013) at St Mary's University will grab the data. Next morning, poof, there's your astrophotograph.

She pinged me this morning via Facebook. Her two targets had arrived from the PlaneWave at Burke-Gaffney Observatory.
