LTImage Screencasts

A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output (or video screen capture), together with spoken instructions, that demonstrates how to perform tasks using a particular piece of software, such as the NSO's LTImage program. For each screencast, you have the option of watching a quick streamed version, or downloading a higher-quality MP4 file that will run on most video platforms, such as Windows Media Player or Apple Quicktime.

The LTImage screencasts guide users through specific tasks to manipulate image data from the Liverpool Telescope. These tasks are as follows:

Please note that over the weekend of the 26-28th May 2017 we will be switching over to our brand new website - during this time there may be periods where the site is difficult to access, and users will be unable to request observations from the telescope. Please bear with us during this time. All should be back up and running by the 29th May 2017.
