FLO Solarcan 2020


Recommended Posts

My Solarcan finished on the 21st December and on Christmas day I cut it open. It was a little wet inside with 1ml of water but I think that was from all the storms we had in summer. I had to let the paper dry in a drawer for half an hour and then it scanned in OK.

I am much happier with the position of the pin hole this year. Last year I used the standard in the middle, this year I added one half way between middle and the top (3/4 upwards) and this worked a lot better. I still think I could raise the hole higher.

That looks excellent Alexandra. I will take mine down soon, perhaps tomorrow and then let’s see what it gives. I’m a bit uncertain about the whole scanning process but hopefully it will go ok.
