First substantial project


#1

This was the first substantial project i did with the GF.


#2

Is that an actual star projection over Round Rock? That is just stunning! :grinning:


#3

Thanks! Yeah it’s the projection from that date and time from the approximate place my daughter was born.


#4

So creative, must know what materials were used to achieve the stunning florescence!


#5

I used an led light kit, that is mounted inside of the shadow box. It has a remote control, and you can change the patterns etc with it. I can link the light kit I used if that is helpful.


#6

Wow! Stellar!


#7

I saw what you did there. :wink:


#8

That is just stunning…and so touching. I love it!


#9

Is there a site that you can find star charts for dates like this? This is really neat.


#10

There’s a few of them I found, but I ended up using a modified version of this one https://armchairastronautics.blogspot.com/p/skymap.html

Here’s another - http://www.skymaponline.net/skymap.aspx


#12

Yeah this is another good one, I liked that the first allowed me to include the milky way, and I was able to make a custom version to automate some future projects with it.


#13

That would be helpful. It’s always nice to see what others have found. Got to love this community!


#14

Ah wow - that little fact makes it so much more impressive. Beautiful work.


#15

This is the light kit I used, as well as some connectors for the strip.
