photographing the eclipse like its 1860

Post by phuphuphnik » Wed Dec 28, 2016 5:10 am

Howdy,
My name is Chris Olsen, I'm a wet plate photographer (and particle accelerator operator). I am finishing up a replica of the Kew photoheliograph that I plan on lugging downstate and taking pictures the old fashioned way. Here are a couple images of the prototype at a reenactment, and the almost finished big one... With any luck I'll be setting up at SIU with the History dept reenacting an expedition, though I haven't heard back from that group yet. Also working on a prism based spectroheliograph.Cheers!

Very nice! Tells the chaps in the spectroscopy section about the SHS you are building, they will like that :)
