-mcmaster notes 
- 
-Apogee Alta U2 from eBay. MSRP is about $6k, was $800 which was the best I could find for a cooled CCD with USB 
- 
-2018-05-22 
-  * Ubuntu 16 on main laptop 
-  * http://​www.randomfactory.com/​apogee-lfa.html 
-  * What was the relationship between libapogee and indi? 
-    * IIRC libapogee got discontinued 
-    * However, they didn't move the examples over 
-    * Should reach out to the devs 
-  * Using indi 
-    * https://​github.com/​indilib/​indi.git 
-    * 58b26c584049e1b9ecd55aa5f4a225677a417898 
-  * Cooled CCD (Alta U2) frontside optical emissions imaging test: unable to see any activity despite 1 hour exposure + histogram equalization (raw image appears black) 
-    * Used minipro 
-    * https://​github.com/​JohnDMcMaster/​uvscada/​blob/​master/​emmap/​ 
-      * I think

-====== libapogee ======

-What I used to get my early results. Works, but not reliably (sometimes image shows large splotch bands, almost like integration didn't start/stop correctly)

-wget http://​www.randomfactory.com/​downloads/​libapogee-3.0.3234.tgz

-====== micromanager ======

-2018-08-28 
- 
-Followed instructions in Apogee official pdf 
- 
-Got it to pickup, heard fan speed change 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-C:\Program Files\Micro-Manager-1.4\MMConfig_apogee.cfg 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-Got this working pretty quickly. Seems to work more reliably than the Apogee demo app
