    Why are all the good posts so old?

To be honest the website used to be a lot more user friendly and intuitive. There was also a rep system which many liked, some for personal status, others...

    Gball lens remove

    I press the diode with the Gball intact into a module. Then use a small flat head screw driver and lever between the rim of the Gball casing and the inside of the module. This means you pull towards the centre of the lens ie pivot on edge of Gball casing. Do this gently and move around the lens...

Yes as Paul said AC. @ Paul no, no problem with focusing as I wanted the tesla and sparks in focus not the laser! ;) I could have increased the depth of field with a higher F-Stop but that would have given a much longer exposure and you wouldnt have seen the individual "lightning...

    Tesla with laser

    Thanks guys much appreciated and glad you like the pics! :beer: Thanks Chris! I have a canon 1DMk4, but you can use any camera where you can set manual exposure. I took the pics around twilight just as it was getting dark. That way I could use a longer exposure without blowing out the...
