Solargraph was created by Frank Ryan

Hey all. So I tried this project and it turned out pretty well. Basically it's a 6 month exposure with a pinhole camera facing South. Idea is to capture a Star Trail - our Star ;-)
Day by day the exposure build up a latent image of the track the Sun makes across the sky.
I've several up around the country that I have to yet collect but this is the nearest one to me (also the 1st I put up so I didn't angle it correctly so the very top of the trail is cut off.
Hope to get the others developed soon.

Well done Frank, a very worthy effort !! It makes me feel like there are not so many cloudy days after all :) :)
