The pinhole camera project 7th September to 17th December 2009

I opened up the pinhole cameras a couple of days early just in case they were set in the wrong position, and also to check if the wettest November on record had made its mark.  One pinhole camera unfortunately DID let in some water (not surprising really) – but the other pinhole camera was bone dry (and that was surprising!).  The view is towards the south, so the pinhole camera is imaging the Sun’s path across my southern horizon.  Breaks in the path are due to cloud – and you can see there are quite a few days where we didn’t see the Sun at all.

I spent quite some time trying to work out what that object is at the middle/bottom.  Shows you how slow I am – that is my fibreglass (observatory) dome!  The bright bits are the hinges/locks on the door.

Well – not a resounding success, but also not too bad for a first try.  I will attempt to do better next time.

    You see the second set of ‘whiter’ lines in the center? I’m wondering if thats full moon trails?
    I like imaging projects like this where you can get a sence of long periods of time, well done, will try myself sometime…

    I wondered about those – you could possibly be right! Full Moon or close to full Moon is a real possibility.
