Second solargraph

Second solargraph

Here is my second solargraph - from March 2018 to September 2018. The pinhole camera was a lager beer can, with a sheet of Ilford Mulitgrade 5x7 paper which fits perfectly without cutting. Not as nice a picture as my first attempt. Second solargraph - 2018 10 30

Just to document the deployment of a solargraph pinhole camera on 2018 March 25. This pinhole camera uses a lager beer can, with a sheet of Ilford Mulitgrade 5x7 paper which fits perfectly without cutting. Beercan solarcam
The Great American Eclipse 2017

The Great American Eclipse 2017

My first total solar eclipse was in 1999 - we travelled to France and had a camp-site in the path of totality, so had a good view and little to do on the day except get prepared, and enjoy the experience. Although there have been a few reasonably accessible total eclipses since then, the 2017 total eclipse which was due to travel across the whole width of the country seemed like too good a chance to miss.
