Opened up the pinhole camera today (the day before the Winter Solstice) after another 6-month exposure imaging the Sun crossing my southern horizon. This time I used a FLAT film in the camera (which was an old tea caddy) rather than the usual beer can pinhole camera which gives a more distorted image as the film is curled around the inside of a beer can. The straight line edge to the left is the roof of the house over the road. You can see plenty of trees along the sky line – and you might just be able see two light dome-shaped structures which are the New Forest observatories. Opened up the camera on 18th June 2011 3 days before the Summer Solstice.
