Here’s a 3D printed Digital Sundial – set up and working for real in the garden.

Compass to point North and protractor to set latitude.

All works!!

Got today’s EPOD with the image of M11 sitting in the Scutum star cloud 🙂 

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work.

One way of taking a high resolution zoom-in zoom-out of a deep-space image is to take the region concerned at 2 different focal lengths, or to take a single frame and then a mosaic of frames of the region. This image showing the Running Man and the whole of the central part of the Orion nebula uses a combination of both techniques. The Running Man alone is a Hyperstar image taken at 550mm focal length, and the central Orion nebula image is a Sky 90 4-frame mosaic taken at a focal length of 450mm. Enjoy 🙂

Got today’s EPOD with the 4-frame mosaic taken with the Canon 200mm lenses and Trius M26Cs – the whole of central Lyra.

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work.

This is EPOD number 94.
