learned of new camera

Noticed a pinned tweet from the Burke-Gaffney Observatory. A new camera, a SBIG, has been been added to the OTA. Actually, I think it was physically installed some time ago but only now implemented. Notably, the narrow band filters have been moved to the new camera. A sulphur filter was added. There are a couple of new science filters as well. Another interesting feature of the new setup is that it can take much shorter exposures. So I've got some learnin' to do...
