Welcome to the Desert Fireball Network's public wiki. This wiki contains documentation for the the DFN's fireball observatories and data processing procedures for collaborators and team members. The DFN's website can be found at

Please contribute where you can by uploading information, designs and files that will help others with installation, maintenance and operation. By documenting your problems and solutions here, you can help other collaborators get up and running faster. We need your help to get cameras off shelves and under the night sky looking for space rocks!
