I attend this year's ConspiracyCon and had the opportunity to meet Ed Grimsley, and view the sky objects through his equipment.
You mention that the iGen is comparable to the Gen3 goggles that Ed has.
Firstly I'd like to comment that the videos I've viewed on the net (including those posted by Ed on YouTube) are nowhere near as good as what I saw
that night in Santa Clara. The same goes for the captures in this thread. Perhaps the video capture circuitry in the iGen doesn't provide an
accurate representation of what's being viewed?
I'd like to setup a system similar to what Ed has: a video cam connected to a goggle, connected to a video projector, but at an affordable price.
Also, do any of the rental outfits rent Gen3 goggles? I'm thinking to get a group together for a couple nights, chipping in $20 each which should
cover the cost for a good quality goggle and projector I would think.
My one comment wrt the Grimsley viewing in June was that they should use a tripod. Having a person hold the goggle and camera introduced too much
shaking. However, the objects where very clear, with very good signal to noise ratio.
That was my first exposure to this phenomenon, and have been spreading the word in SoCal.
