Oh you mean that picture, yes as mentioned it's a cloud ceilometer, it uses a laser to measure cloud heights (and depths).   You can see the outputs in the screenshot, also I posted a chart a few posts above showing the raw data.  I haven't had enough interesting clouds yet to figure out just how detailed an image it can produce.

Yeah... I paid 200 for mine off eBay, it was just a fluke that one was listed when I randomly looked too. It was listed as untested/condition unknown (the power connections are mil-spec bayonet things) so it was a gamble.

Where are you located?
You said you've not had enough 'interesting' clouds to test your ceilometer.  I can send you LOTS of clouds from here in the Midwest USA.

I assume you're in England from the price you paid for your ceilometer.

Hi!

Did you ever published this on GitHub? If yes, what is the repository?

Thanks!
