Grading

I had the same opinion until I started to really examine those that were true track vs. false. Over time, I've developed an understanding as to what differentiates the two. I thought it was unfortunate that this was the means by which we were being trained and that the original training videos shoul...

Help Finding the Calibration Track

I failed to find the calibration track in this calibration movie. Does anyone see anything that I don't? 987769V1

It may not be the correct movie id since I'm using Firefox and I'm not sure of the back button took me to the correct place.

Cheers,

Same artifact on multiple images?

Yes, there is dust on the lens. They appear in different locations depending on the series of the movies. I'm just amazed that they keep it so clean seeing how difficult it is to keep my camera lens clean.

Slow Connection

Every time I've been in Oz, the connect speed back to the US has been slow (probably because the ocean's water pressure squeezing the ether a bit too much).

Nevertheless, I find that I consistently get good connect speeds at around 14:00 GMT.

CM 4344092V1

It's the one at 405, 288. Do you notice the small dot that move slightly to the left as you descend the focal plane? That's the cone of entry which gets smaller and smaller as the particle slows down. I've seen one real track that shows this characteristic.

Consistency is a problem

I agree, there is no consistency in the calibration movies. I see a calibration movie and the only difference between the correct answer and the incorrect answer is the focus. In another calibration movie, it may not be that at all. Without clear criteria, and consistent calibration movies, confusio...

Why is this a CM?

Why, in this movie, 5177604V1, is the in focus spot a CM and the other out of focus spots not?
