Live-Streams: Observing the Night Sky

Users can upload various files and documents to the Bitrix24 system. Often, we are more used to opening and editing files in Office 365 programs. If you work with Office 365 and all employees have their own work account, you can choose this service to view and edit documents in Bitrix24.

In this video, you will learn how to integrate Office 365 into Bitrix24 and work with the files in Office 365.

hello there my name is Emin Mamedov i'm representing 
company IT-sputnik and in this video i want to

0:00:07.040,0:00:18.240
show you a case how you can do integration of 
Office 365 together with Bitrix24 to let you

0:00:19.040,0:00:26.960
edit documents using Office 365 so for that first of 
all you need to go to admin panel of Bitrix

0:00:27.840,0:00:33.440

How to: Integrate Office365 to Bitrix24

views December 22, 2021 8:07 am

Electronically-assisted Astronomy (EAA) opens up new vistas for those who would never be able to make time to travel to view the heavenlies through a scope like our RASA 11-inch with a ZWO ASI2600MC Pro astro-camera and an Octopi-Astro camera interface. Operating on an iOptron CEM70G mount from a Pier-Tech Tele-Station 2 observatory on a Pier-Tech Adjustable-Height pier for precision "Go-To" targeting, in this video, we feature, our continuing chase Open Clusters from the Herschel 400 List of deep-space objects - the 16th edition in this series. In this video, as mentioned above, we'll take on as many open clusters as we can cover during our 2-hour observing session.  Dedicated to one of our most faithful live stream participants, Mike, who loves open clusters. : )

Thanks for joining us!

We'll hope to play some background music for the first time in this session. We plan to use music from Stellardrone:

We're grateful for their great sound. All of their music is used here under a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution Unported License and is being used without having changed the tracks. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ The track list we hope to use:

Some might be interested in the equipment and software that we use. For whatever it's worth, we're relying on the following:

Optical Tube Assembly: 11-inch Celestron Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph telescope
Mount: iOptron CEM70G
Primary Imaging Camera: ZWO ASI2600MC Pro
Camera interface: Octopi-Astro RASA 11 Camera Adaptor
Observatory: Pier-Tech Tele-station 2
Pier: Pier-Tech Adjustable-Height Pier

Imaging (EAA) software: Sharpcap by Robin Glover
Portable operating solution: iCron USB Raven 3124 USB 3-2-1 Extender operating indoors, approximately 200 feet from the observatory, with data being transported via fiber-optic cable

We observe from the outskirts of Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

The Green Comet, Our Visitor from Outer Space [Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF)] via a RASA 11-inch Telescope

2.7K views February 3, 2023 1:15 pm

This is a live stream of our early-morning comet-chasing attempts on Jan. 27, 2023, to locate Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF). [Note: In the video, I struggle to remember how fast this comet is traveling. The actual speed is over 127,000 miles per hour. By comparison, the typical jet travels around 500mph.)

At Emerald Hills Skies, we use a technique called "Electronically-assisted Astronomy (EAA)." In this Emerald Hills Skies "Skylet," we review Stellarium as part of the craft that helps us do EAA each session. We regularly rely on a RASA 11-inch with a ZWO ASI2600MC Pro astro-camera and an Octopi-Astro camera interface operating on an iOptron CEM70G mount from a Pier-Tech Tele-Station 2 observatory on a Pier-Tech Adjustable-Height pier for precision "Go-To" targeting. 

The background music on this live stream was produced by Stellardrone and we're so grateful for the fact that he graciously makes it available without charge. Learn more at:

Some might be interested in the equipment and software that we use. For whatever it's worth, we're relying on the following:

Optical Tube Assembly: 11-inch Celestron Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph telescope
Mount: iOptron CEM70G
Primary Imaging Camera: ZWO ASI2600MC Pro
Observatory: Pier-Tech Tele-station 2
Pier: Pier-Tech Adjustable-Height Pier
Dew Shield: Celestron 11 RASA Aluminum Dew Shield
All-Sky Camera - ZWO ASI178MM
The USB hub on the equipment plate (riding up on the scope) is a Pegasus Astro USB Control Hub.
That equipment plate also carries a Pegasus Astro Pocket Powerbox Micro to power the USB Hub and cameras, as well as control the dew heater bands to prevent dew build-up on the two cameras.

Early-Morning Comet-Chasing via Electronically-Assisted Astronomy (EAA) - Real-Time Telescope Views

218 views January 27, 2023 6:26 pm

Electronically-assisted Astronomy (EAA) opens up new vistas for those who would never be able to make time to travel to view the heavenlies through a scope like our RASA 11-inch with a ZWO ASI2600MC Pro astro-camera and an Octopi-Astro camera interface. Operating on an iOptron CEM70G mount from a Pier-Tech Tele-Station 2 observatory on a Pier-Tech Adjustable-Height pier for precision "Go-To" targeting, in this video, we feature, our efforts to pursue the Hidden Treasures List deep-sky objects. This is the sixth video in the series.  We observe from the outskirts of Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

Early-Morning Comet-Chasing via Electronically-Assisted Astronomy (EAA) - Real-Time Telescope Views

218 views January 27, 2023 6:26 pm

This is a live stream (and recording of a live stream) sharing an objective review of Stellarium, an open-source planetarium software designed to help amateur astronomers plan and envision their observing sessions both in advance and during the night.

At Emerald Hills Skies, we use a technique called "Electronically-assisted Astronomy (EAA)." In this Emerald Hills Skies "Skylet," we review Stellarium as part of the craft that helps us do EAA each session. We regularly rely on a RASA 11-inch with a ZWO ASI2600MC Pro astro-camera and an Octopi-Astro camera interface operating on an iOptron CEM70G mount from a Pier-Tech Tele-Station 2 observatory on a Pier-Tech Adjustable-Height pier for precision "Go-To" targeting. 

In this video, we make reference to the book by Stephen James O'Meara entitled,  "The Secret Deep," published by Cambridge University Press (Cambridge, UK, as well as New York, Melbourne, Madrid, Cape Town, Singapore, and Sao Paulo).

The background music on this live stream was produced by Stellardrone and we're so grateful for the fact that he graciously makes it available without charge. Learn more at:

https://soundcloud.com/stellardrone

Some might be interested in the equipment and software that we use. For whatever it's worth, we're relying on the following:

Optical Tube Assembly: 11-inch Celestron Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph telescope
Mount: iOptron CEM70G
Primary Imaging Camera: ZWO ASI2600MC Pro
Observatory: Pier-Tech Tele-station 2
Pier: Pier-Tech Adjustable-Height Pier
Dew Shield: Celestron 11 RASA Aluminum Dew Shield
All-Sky Camera - ZWO ASI178MM
The USB hub on the equipment plate (riding up on the scope) is a Pegasus Astro USB Control Hub.
That equipment plate also carries a Pegasus Astro Pocket Powerbox Micro to power the USB Hub and cameras, as well as control the dew heater bands to prevent dew build-up on the two cameras.
Filter: Celestron Light-Pollution Imaging Filter
Focus Motor: Celestron Focus Motor
Focusing Software: NINA with Hocus Focus plug-in by George Hilios (jokogeo)
Streaming software: OSB with Stream Deck
Planetarium software: Stellarium
Imaging (EAA) software: Sharpcap
Portable operating solution: icron USB Raven 3124 USB 3-2-1 Extender operating indoors, approximately 200 feet from the observatory, with data being transported via fiber-optic cable
