plotted January SQM data

Did some work with the Unihedron Sky Quality Meter (SQM-LE) data gathered from the permanent station at the Carr Astronomical Observatory.

Downloaded the current data. Part of the new monthly backup process. Until we fully automate a transfer.

Analysed, manually, the February data, to current. Spotted a very high value: 21.94! Awesome.

In Visual Basic for Applications for Excel, automated the importing of the SQM DAT text files for inclusion in the statistics and graph.

line graph of SQM readings for each day of January 2016

Generated a full month graph for January!

Interesting to note the effect of the full Moon waning from the 23rd...
