Not sure if it is just out of focus or the screen is dirty?

Yeah it's dirty (camera is brand new), and will be clean after the next downpour (preferably without hail).

We're installing a comphensive remote cleaning system there early next year (and a few other locations too) so it'll be sparking every day.

Strong southerly winds always salt up the Newy cam.

Yeah I've been tinkering away at various incarnations of remote cleaning systems for a few years, and I reckon we've got a bulletproof product now.

...imagines attached to camera two mini robotic arms with paper towel in one hand and windex in the other. :)

Hi Ben,

Just wondering how the remote cleaning system is going for Newy and Avoca cams?

Still a while off mate. 

BTW, I think part of today's issues are fog related.
