Hi Vincent

interesting, but why does it need three lenses. I do that with a simple plössel, see the eclipse report

Interesting Idea, isn't this just a smaller version of a Sun Gun.

Hi Vincent


now I see the point. No white flat needed to project the sun on, on the other Hand, a rather small pic of the sun

Wow 183 Euros, mine cost..... nothing as I used spare parts.

Must admit the Elio is better looking though.

We will be using this on SUNday as the image is up to 7cm depending on ep used.
