Re: Unexplained phenomena while sailing...

Not sure a gimbaled system would work reliably and be able to resolve the night sky... great idea just not practible on a boat, the complexity, weight, storage, etc... even looking through binoculars at night is rough with rolling waves, etc.

A tripod with motion sensing and adjusting legs may help similar to adjusting shocks on a car, the D/A processing would need to be pretty significant to 'foresee' the next adjustments (rolling waves)... this is the problem the military has with adjusting mirrors for camouflage in real time... processing power while in movement mimicking the background.
