OMTI auroral imager at RISR data download

The Optical Mesosphere Thermosphere Imager (OMTI) system used four CCD filtered cameras to gaze at the aurora from 2005-2014 at the Resolute Bay Incoherent Scatter Radar (RISR) site. Distant instruments such as satellites and SuperDARN have been used together with OMTI data in the selection of OMTI-based literature below.

OMTI data download, plot and register

The OMTI data have been posted along with OMTI-RISR plotting/registration software developed by John Swoboda.

Recursively download OMTI data with

wget -r -np -nc -nH --cut-dirs=4 --random-wait --wait 1 -e robots=off

you can of course specify individual folders too.
