Doc's idea!! Rember Dean started it :-)

If all of us once a week or once a month take  a pic from the same place,
whereever you are on this planet it would be amazing!
And somewhere a little Vacheron&Constantinin the pic...
But always from the  same place on your space on this earth Doc's idea!! Rember Dean started it  :-)
It's just an idea Doc's idea!! Rember Dean started it  :-)

Let's start tomorrow, because here is dark as a in coal mine!

Here's an idea for you, Mats... Set up your camera to take a picture of the sun with a regular or slightly wide angle lens (35 to 50mm). Make sure you can see the horizon and the sky. Then take either multiple exposures or individual pics about once every 2 weeks of the sun and its position in the sky. You have to have a clear sky of course and take the pics at the same time every day. Do this for a year. When you merge the pics you will have a photo of the analemma which looks like a slightly flattened figure 8 and traces the path of the sun over the year. It is a result of the axial tilt of the earth and the elliptical path of the Earth's orbit. It also indirectly indicates the Equation of Time. Have fun! Joseph
JB, did you ever do it? and if so, can you show the final result? (nt)

Hi Francois, I never have tried it although I have wanted to. I don't have a good field of view from my house. Too many trees around. I'll have to get out my chainsaw! Regards, Joseph

To seewhat this looks like and the explanations, just do a search on the word "analemma" Tres impressionante et fascinante! Joseph
Most Impressive!
