confirmed pixels

Heard from Mr Lane. I had asked questions about Burke-Gaffney Observatory pixels...

I verified the Apogee camera chip is 4k by 4k. The system is using bin x 2. So then effectively we have a 2k by 2k (2048) image.

Verified the reduced default image size is now 1336x1336 (from 1536x1536).

This was done with the integration of the second camera (a SBIG STXL 11002) that when binned will be 2004x1336 pixels. The BGO director wanted the default image, which fits most objects, to be the same for both cameras.


This change occurred back on 12 Aug '17.
