The Rock of Ages camera is offline for the rest of the season. We've got some good lessons-learned to try and improve it for next year. Stay tuned!

I second the notion.

I'd be glad to help solve or work on the issues you've faced. PM or email me if more appropriate.

Sorry to keep bumping this thread, but I don't want to start a new post just for this:

The report for the 2018 Rock of Ages lighthouse restoration work is available here. It's a good wrap-up of what we accomplished in this year's short work season. I think it sounds like it wasn't a lot of hard work, but rest assured...it was.

This is such an incredible experience to be part of this effort.

It sure looks like a lot was accomplished. The amount of effort required I'm sure depends on skill and experience. It would have been a lot of hard work for me.
