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.

Yeah, great images!  Say, let's talk 640x480 when you get a chance, just
a reminder and you can reply to my office email address...   hihi
My recollection is clear since I don't do anything so I am keen to play
with "settings" (intentional no-detail reference) and it be would be
nice to combine it with a resolution change capability as well.
Carrot on a stick in front of everybody, I'm mean without a doubt! 
Here's a chance to up your game...
