As the light conditions change, the cameras adjust their apertures in steps, so the brightness of the images changes in a noticeable way. As the light gets dimmer, they switch to what looks like an infrared mode, and it looks like a slightly colorized black & white image. I can see as well at night as with the optical mirrors, though I have not done this much yet. I will be driving after dark this evening, and I'll try to take a picture of the screens.

I do hope to mount the cameras more closely to the sail panels -- I will do this after I'm confident it all will work out. I also want to clean up the way the screens mount, by attaching their frames together into one unit; and I have to deal with the wires obviously.
Sincerely, Neil
