I started using Voyager in December 2018. I have several projects in flight, but this is one of the first where I’ve gathered “enough” data and processed it all the way through.
This object only pops between my trees, a bit above 36 degrees altitude (not Dec!), for about 3 hours per night. This data was collected over 18 nights between December and February, all with Voyager and not a single hang or crash. I never lost a sub due to Voyager (I had a USB cable problem one night but Voyager didn’t hang, it just recognized the issue and stopped gracefully after the specified number of retries).
Well done, Leo!
