Hi Bob, 

I'll try to find some images of the participating politicians as well,
just did not manage to do it yet. 
It did not occur to me before, that also images are needed to write about
the light pollution ;-) 

Marko wrote me from Finland this morning they will use some of the
pictures we made yesterday and that they'd like to pay for them. This
way the pictures would become not free to use. Another will remain free,
which ones, it will be apparent tomorrow perhaps.

I feel a bit uneasy that pictures of me should be used. Fortunately, the
Brno lighting utility borrowed me the single Victor lamp from Thorn they
had not installed (a damaged one, to be replaced by Thorn by a new one).
For another lamps, they have usually some more pieces in stock, as they
are mounted on poles and can be destroyed by lorries. Victors are mounted
on strings only and are considered to be not endangered, so no single one
is to be bought just for a future replacement -- nice, isn't it?

I have made four another details of that fixture yesterday as well, 
they are presently both at 
and at the old server

Dear Marko,

the weather has been very poor for making pictures this afternoon,
my colleague Rudolf Novak tried to do some pictures, but the wind has been
strong and he left a stative at home... Just four pictures are
technically OK perhaps, but if it were Sun...  See
http://amper.ped.muni.cz/jenik/me -- start with the half_jpg
versions, to choose if one of those four would suit you. 

We'll try next time with better weather, perhaps tomorrow if needed. 

best regards,
