    I liked the Jackson Cam! It was actually in the home of a former Obs employee up on Tyrol who has to suffer through those spectacular views every day.

    What about someplace up in Jefferson, Randolph or even Twin Mountain? I really don't know that area very well, but I do recall some amazing high plateau vistas of the Presi Range from around Santa's Village. That plus the Gorham side would complete the circle around the mountain, giving all of us an amazing look at the mountain from many points on the compass.

    Thanks for the input!

    The lens and cameras are so much better today. The roadside view area just north of N Conway on route 16 might be an interesting spot. But it would be a long throw to send the signal back to the summit.

    I was also wandering around NW of the summit last night (on Google Earth). There are a few peaks there that would give awesome views. But, power would be a problem.

    It seems like Twin Mountain would just be a longer shot of what the Presi Cam already sees.

    I haven't been up there in awhile, but can you see Mount Washington from Gorham?

    From an observer standpoint a view from a northern town looking south at MWN makes the most sense. Assuming you can actually see the summit.

    Default Gorham Cam

    You just can't get a good view from Gorham or Berlin unless there's a way to have a remote solar powered camera that someone would be willing to climb to and babysit now and then. From Berlin you can see the ridge of Nelson Crag, Ball Crag and the summit, just barely, behind Mount Madison. Checking around the photo journal turns up some good shots from Jefferson and Twin Mountain, but again, they seem to be from remote sites. I'm not sure what could be done from any of these angles.

    When I was an intern, I spent alot of time at Jefferson Campground. And while the only place that you could see the mountain from there was on top of an upswing on the swingset, there were some good spots around. From downtown Jefferson on Rt.2, perhaps from the roof of the general store, or perhaps from the clubhouse of the golfcourse.

    Then again, I don't remember if you could see washington from there, or just a fantastic view of the northern presis. Google earth anyone.

    You can definitely see Washington from there.

    A problem with a Gorham view would be the sun. Direct sunlight on the lens will cause damage. Now that I think of it, this might be tough to line up and be okay.

    I would like to see a Presidentials camera sunrise video. I know that will have the same issue with sun glare. But, this time of year it would not be a problem.

    Use number 16 for the new Presi Cam: Ceiliometer

    It would be interesting to get Lakes of the Clouds hut in sight on the Presi premium views.

    What about the feasibility of getting a user controlled cam like this one at Killington:

    I'm sure bandwidth would be an issue, but they seem to be very popular.
