Dennis Wingo: Status End of Day Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Well got more done today! We just finished capturing G5-148, meaning we have ten more Goldstone tapes to go!
Among the images captured today was the Earth image of LOV-027H. It should look mega cool with our processing that we have now.
One big darn headache that took forever to sort out today is that Goldstone not only quit putting sequence numbers on the tapes, they must have forgotten two tapes after G5-136 and numbered them for the following day as G5-146 and G5-147′. That single quote is for G5-147 prime as it is normally known. So we have TWO TAPES labeled G5-147! It looks like the operator of the FR-900 had a bad day or two. The only way to figure these things out is to actually watch every darn frame let and figure out where the end of frames are. No two high res or medium res images start or end on the same framlet, thanks to how the resolution charts were imprinted on the film.
So, I will list the images in the morning. Going for wine now!
