this automatic time-lapse camera should take photos of the glacier using a normal logitech webcam. The Beagle-based system survived the whole winter on its two big batteries but the day we left it in october its waterproof usb plug lost connection sadly. It is now set up so we should see the melting of the snow revealing our equipment hopefully!
we have so many batteries in the dGPS cases we’re investigating using a small petrol generator to charge them after they lost all charge over the winter. Phil is in the background testing the webcam node.
