On a clear day viewing the Obs deck web cam I noticed there's an X on one of the blocks. Is this where you stand to get your picture taken? If so, how often are they taken and by which clock do you sinchronize? Just wonderin'.

The pictures for all the MWO web cameras are updated every 15 minutes on the quarter hour. If you synchronize your computer with a time web site like time.windows.com or 0.us.pool.ntp.org you will have an accurate time that will be in synch with the MWO computers. Set your watch to agree with your computer.

...I noticed there's an X on one of the blocks. ....That is the camera censor / ejector. 10 seconds before the picture is snapped it does an image recognition scan, anyone trying to moon the camera is ejected upward about 100 feet at a 10 degree angle to the left.

:rolleyes:

Is that to the camera's left or the person's left when facing the camera?

Just need to know how to stay out of the way.
