Ha! Great to see its still working! Pretty good when our bare minimum success criteria was one image from orbit from one of the two cameras....
Wish I had more time to think about the roll rates and the earth-detection sensitivity settings (indicated by the 'VT-2' watermark). Of the 9 images collected today, 3 looked pretty nice, 2 look like partial downloads, and 4 were false detects of light glinting off the antenna....wish we had factored more into the design to account for that so that we aren't wasting time downloading 'bad' images.....lesson learned for future work for next time.
I do love those limb of the earth shots....def my favorites!

Agreed! Good job, VT and Fox team! Always fun to help collect these
frames for the photos. Did you visit the link of a photo, and see that it
shows where the satellite was then the image was taken? Very cool!
