Data Source...Self Acquired...Traveller...

18 Dec, 2018 02:47
I got a notification that some of my images are missing the "Data source" field. I'm happy to provide as much info as users want, regardless of whether it's mandatory or not, so I started adding the data source. Immediately, I'm confused by one of the options under Self Acquired (which is the category of all my uploads… "Traveller"…what does that mean? "Backyard" and "Own remote observatory" seem clear. Does "Traveller" mean I went somewhere to get the image?

I also note that there is usually enough information in my description to answer the data source question.

Hi David,

Yes.  Basically you took your gear, packed it in your car and went to hopefully a darker site than your backyard.
