General Discussion / Applying for Dark-Sky Park status
« Last post by admin on March 07, 2017, 01:36:16 pm »
The SQM has been used extensively for gathering data to help apply for Dark-Sky Park Status with the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA).

Many people have applied to the IDA for a Dark-Sky park status including Georgia MacMillan of the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology of Ireland. Her extensive research and work on this topic can be found in these two documents which may be helpful to others pursuing the same goal:
  • Dissertation PDF: Preserving our Night-time Skies, An exploratory study on the impact of light pollution and the potential for a new dark-sky site in County Mayo, Ireland. by Georgia MacMillan.
  • Application PDF: An Application to the International Dark-Sky Association for Ballycroy National Park and Wild Nephin that are included in the application for Mayo Dark Sky Park status.

Many routers have the ability to fix the IP address of devices by recognizing the MAC number. This way you can leave the SQM-LE Ethernet settings at DHCP and your router will assign the same IP address each time it sees the SQM-LE at power up.

Even when the values vary greatly in the y axis.

Think I solved it, sort of.... For some reason when I reconnect the SQM and I ask to search its IP it is different than last time and I need to copy and paste it in. Then it works. I save the config and now it seems to recognize it.

There is another issue in an new post.

Works with both Reader 2.0 and Reader Pro 2. But UDM. Any ideas?

Does UDM recognize the SQM-LE in the find window? Does UDM show the MAC number and IP address?

Is it possible that you are running UDM at the same time as the SQM-Reader software? Only one software can be run at the same time.

If possible, please provide the details of what UDM shows when it "does not work with your SQM-LE".

We have been able to radically reduce the data download time for the SQM-LU-DL meter. A typical 30 minute download can now be done in 65 seconds. Using the new "Retrieve All (bin)" button.

There are changes in the firmware and UDM software. The firmware change (feature 45) is included with the latest UDM version (version 85) and is fairly easy to install on your system without worry of losing existing data or calibration settings.

You can get the latest UDM software for Windows from here:
