New version of the plugin attached (2019-02-14):
Unzip the this file and replace the existing solarmonitor.jar (in FireCapture plugins/x64/solarmonitor location) with the new version.
This version will also add seeing info to the FireCapture information file.
BugFix: Firecapture can now capture records when Plugin is not connected.

SolarMonitor connects to a Solar Seeing Scintillation Monitor and can be interfaced with Image Aquisition Software (currently FireCapture supported) to trigger aquisition when seeing conditions are good. There are Win10, Linux and Mac Versions.

Please read SolarMonitor.pdf for more info
