Webcam - Swannanoa, North Canterbury
The camera an AGFA 1280 is located at Swannanoa, North Canterbury, New Zealand. It is pointing approximately east towards our lavender field.
It is controlled from the server through a reliable serial port - none of this usb webcam rubbish! A PIC micro is used to
control a servo which opens / closes a manual shutter infront of the camera to stop sensor damage from direct sun.

Photo on a clear day, so you get an example of what the view is like here, of snow on the 7th of June 2008 here and a stormy view with the sun on the 30th of June 2008 here.
