Well this pic didn't show the tunnel effect that I could see. It was probably a too fast shutter speed. I'll do another later using a fog machine instead of incense smoke and a longer shutter speed. It's a cheap digital Canon. This was my first time doing the tunnel effect and I enjoyed it except for the smell of the smoke. ;-) The build was done with a Radio Shack 18,000 rpm motor and a dental (first surface) mirror epoxied onto a 1/2 inch Plexiglas rod at ~98 degrees which produced an oval circle. I used my 100mw greenie, because I need more experience before I use my 1350mw 445nm labby. The greenie was really intense as it is, and I might need a higher speed motor to use my 445 labby.
