Measuring Skyglow Using a Digital Camera

Postby Rexxi » Mon Jan 07, 2013 1:02 am

I'm doing a project on http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... background and I'm just having a hard time understanding the project in general. Does it really matter what kind of camera I use? I have a report for this project due in 2 days and I was planning on asking if it could be extended for me, considering that I, to put it bluntly, have no clue what I am suppose to be doing. This is my field of interest, which is why I decided to do this project. I like challenges. But the instructions for this project just don't compute. I was wondering if someone could explain, in simpler terms, what I need to do exactly? It's actually quite urgent.
