I tested the action cam down at the chain stay today, which gave some good scenes. I just added them to my FORMER MOVIE as you can see below.

We are on our way to Norway – virtually. So we decided to go for another outdoor test this year to have a significant testing of our equipment. We settled the date for mid of October, at that time it already could be very cold. That’s what we need to see if the equipment is the right one. And by doing that we’ll dream on of our way to GLITTERTIND.

Wir sind auf dem Weg nach Norwegen – so gut wie. Wir haben uns entschieden, noch in diesem Jahr einen weiteren Outdoor Test zu starten. Der Termin ist Mitte Oktober, zu der Zeit kann es schon ziemlich kalt sein. Das ist’s was wir brauchen, um zu sehen ob die Ausrüstung die Richtige ist. Und während wir das tun, träumen wir weiter vom Weg zum GLITTERTIND.

It’s the 3rd season since I bought my GHOST amr 9000 mountain bike. It’s time to look at the conclusion. First of all this bike was constructed to be an all mountain bike, so it resides somewhere between a tour- and downhill bike. If that’s what one is looking for it would be the right choice, because it perfectly fits this domain. I’m not the best driver and still make mistakes, nonetheless this bike was unbreakable. It’s an easy to ride, tough even though sensible bike that takes nearly every terrain that doesn’t match the downhill category.

Under the line I had:
- a relative small investment
- no serious outage or defect
- few maintenance hours
- fun!

I simply can recommend it.

I took some more shots of the moon. This time without using the objective which gave a better result. You can find it below. I did some further tries by taking photos of JUPITER and his MOONS. In that night we had a very good seeing so I could identify the different colours on the surface and clearly see his moons. It’s awesome every time. But the photos I took with the webcam where disappointing, also after some correlations of several pics. So I think I need to tune the webcam somehow. Maybe it helps if I reduce the distance of the CCD to the objective a little bit. That would require a new housing but it’s worth giving it a try…





All that I can say after having the Tamiya under trial for some time is: It’s a nice toy!
