hardware and software intervalometers

Helped Ian D with image run stuff.

When he produced a new clone intervalometer that looked just like mine, I walked him through the programming.

When Ian said he was looking forward to using the intervalometer to get past limitations in Backyard EOS, I asked what he meant. He thought that BYE was limited to 30 second subexposures. No way! I showed him how to program runs over 30 seconds.

I argued that Backyard is far superior is many respects. The intervalometer would be extremely useful, while less powerful, when he did not want to cart a computer into the field.
