Linuxastronomy project page on "Maker Faire" web site. O'Reilly publish excellent computer books, they also produce fine events, people will remember them positively. People working at Alembic have supported us since almost the beginning. We are thankful for their commitment toward our project.

Maker faire is a show dedicated to almost anybody interested to create or modify something. It is a show for amateurs, hobbyists, engineers, creators of all kind.
Visitors have a chance to be part of the experience. Visitors can be transformed into futur makers.

Maker Faire is a serious show with a twist of fantaisy to spice it up a little.

Thank you to all the organizers, who have been stressed so we do not have to.
They ran all around, to make everybody feel home and comfortable.

Thank you to Dale Dougherty for inviting us.
We are expressing our greatest thank you, to all the people who made the show happen.

About the makers running the booth at Maker Faire...

Jim helps us when ever we need help in Northern California. Jim runs the following sites :
EduCapers (www.educapers.org), It's My Story, (www.itsmystory.net), and It's my sky (itsmysky.com).

Ron came on board very early and brought knowledge and passion and is almost co-founder of "linuxastronomy". Ron is Chief Engineer of Alembic, Inc.

Eugene founded the group "linuxastronomy". At the beginning, to share his interest while volunteering some time with kids.
At the time of this writing, Eugene has been to 9 main trade shows, or conferences for "linuxastronomy", and many smaller presentations.

Eugene currently works as freelance and has experience in many fields, including computer hardware and software, electrical, mechanical, making equipment for scientific research, such as cryogenic, high vacuum, microscopy, electron-microscopy and more.
Please, use the following for possible work enquiries.

About the Fire truck

The Fire truck seems to become an icon or a mascot representing Make Faire and the Make: magazine.

The truck was originally used by a team of volunteer firefighters, from the city of Wiesmoor (en.wikipedia.org), state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) (en.wikipedia.org), north-western Germany (en.wikipedia.org)

The truck is still equiped with the original European horn and round dark blue lights, which make it almost exotic in U.S.A.

This kind of vehicule is still popular in many Europeans countries, to fight fire, but is also used in case of accidents or environmental disasters.

More information (www.makezine.com) about it, with readers comments and images.
Simple description of it (www.makezine.com).

Linuxastronomy booth
These pictures have been taken early in the morning, before the show opened, this explain the lack of visitors. Both days have been well attended with many visitors.
Linuxastronomy booth Linuxastronomy booth
The telescope has been made partially in Southern California (optical tube) and partially in Northern California (mount and part of the electronic).

Its only on the afternoon before the show that all the telescope parts came together for the first time.
Friday evening has been dedicated to adjusting the telescope on site, using screw drivers, wrenches and a little bit of "Dremel" (little grinder).

The motors ran properly on Saturday around lunch time. For the first time, the motors were used to control both axis.

Minors adjusting and bolts tightening has been completed on Saturday night.

The telescope ran amazingly well the whole day on Sunday.

A seismometer on the left and its reading on the monitor next to it.
The seismometer page is being re-worked (at time of this writing, June 2007), meanwhile an older page. is still available.
Current experimental seismometer reading.

(The equipment on the bench was a little tight as we did not have wires long enough to reach our dark blue counter with stars background, on the right of the bench).

Kids had a lot of fun and asked many questions.
They were running from all around, to be taken in picture in front of the telescope.

FAQ regarding the show
This is a selection of questions that come regularly.
("FAQ" stand for Frequently Asked Questions).

We are often asked many similar questions regarding our project, regardless the trade show or conference.
Parts of the questions and answers, can be found on previous events, for more information, please check the following events we attended:

Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE), Los Angeles, California (2007).
Emerging Technology Conference (ETech), San Diego, California (2007).


Where is the newsletter you showed us at the show ?

Select this icon for the current newsletter :
picture, ephemerides page
The newsletter is a monthly publication. It come in the current month and stay until the next one is displayed.
When we participate to an event, such as a trade show or exhibition, the newsletter publication may be delayed a week or more.


Are you using recycled material in your project ?

We try to use as many recycled products or scraps as we can.
Example :
picture, bed frame, used for mirror cell. picture, bed frame, used for mirror cell. picture, bed frame, converted into a mirror cell.
The mirror cell holder is made from an old bed frame.

picture, bed frame, converted into a mirror cell. picture, computer case sheet metal, used to create mirror cell's triangles. picture, computer case sheet metal, used to create mirror cell's triangles.
The triangles supporting the mirror weight are made of an old computer case, as well as laminated floor wood scrap.

The motors and most of the electronic components displayed at Make Faire, were recycled components from surplus stores, or owned by one of the volunteers.


Are member of the group astronomers ?

We are simply amateurs with an interest in the Linux operating system and astronomy, this project is a learning process for all of us.
Sometimes we fail, we have to make parts again, or modify them. We are learning at each step.
We are getting better at each step, however, we are still amateurs and will probably learn a lot more before the completion of the telescope.


Can we already use the telescope over the internet ?

Not yet, we are still far away from completion. We still need to work on the hardware as well as the software.
At this point in time, we estimate, at least one year of work, until we can begin testing.
We are all volunteers, the work is done on spare time.



When will you start working on the telescopes in others locations ?

As soon as we are far enough in the completion of the current telescope.
We are a small group, we try to stay focussed and work by steps.

Why did you have to put the telescope together at the Maker Faire site ?

It has been assembled from parts coming from Northern and Southern California.
We worked using the internet and the telephone, sending rough drawings and images to each others.
We drove from North and South and met the day before at the Maker Faire site.

The other reason is, the telescope and the equipment are becoming to big to fit in only one car.


Is this telescope a prototype ?
or
If this telescope is a prototype will you use it in real life ?

This telescope is a prototype, it will be used on every step, including in use in real life.
By making it, we discovers new problems and find solutions. It will be similar once completed, we will probably have problems and will have to find more solutions.
It is a learning process and we are learning a lot. We already have redesigned two main parts of the telescope with success.


Why is the telescope made of wood / plywood ?

Wood is a fine material for an amateur. It is available almost anywhere on the planet at a reasonable cost. It is relatively easy to work with and often require only simple machines, which are usually cheaper than machine for metal cutting, forming, welding...

As the project evolve, material can change too. Currently, we are evaluating "Carbon Fiber", steel and aluminium. They all have interesting specifications as well as drawbacks.


Is the telescope accurate ?

We do not know yet... The telescope is a work in progress, we are making it. The current motors are working only since Saturday (first day of the show).
The optical tube and the mount have been put together for the first time the evening before the show open (on Friday).
We will have probably more work to do, to make it good enough for astronomy use.


Which Linux distribution are you running ?
or
Which Linux distribution does the telescope run ?
or
Why don't you run the Linux distribution "xyz" ?

*** Warning, Linux specific language used in this answer... ***

We are open to many linux distributions. Usually, volunteers working on the project use the linux distribution(s) of their choice for development purpose.


Distributions come and go, we do run our software presentation on different linux distributions at exhibitions.
(click on an icon for more information).
At the last show our software presentation was done using kubuntu logo (Kubuntu) (en.wikipedia.org).
Kubuntu is a version of ubuntu logo (Ubuntu) (en.wikipedia.org) using the desktop environment kde logo KDE (en.wikipedia.org) instead of gnome logo Gnome (en.wikipedia.org).
At the Maker Faire exhibition, we ran Open Suse logo (Open Suse) (en.wikipedia.org). with Window Maker logo Window Maker (en.wikipedia.org) as window manager.

We recently did presentations on older computers, using "live CDs" of :
DSL logo DSL (Damn Small Linux) (en.wikipedia.org),
Knopix logo Knopix (en.wikipedia.org),
Dyne:bolic logo Dyne:bolic (en.wikipedia.org),

Also on older machines, hard drive installations of :
Mandriva logo Mandriva (en.wikipedia.org),
Debian logo (Debian) (en.wikipedia.org),

As well as LTSP (en.wikipedia.org) which is the Linux Terminal Server Project.
Older computers can usually be used as thin client (en.wikipedia.org), because, the computation required on the "thin client" end is relatively low.
A thin client is a computer used to display information computed on another machine.

We have a commitment, our main priority is to complete the remote controlled telescope project with the resources we have. At least at the beginning, the telescope control software will probably run on a dedicated machine.
