Solargraph: long-exposure photograph which shows the path taken by the sun across the sky.

Dutch amateur astronomer and photographer Jan Koeman shows us how easy and inexpensive it is to take stunning photos like the one above, all you need is a sheet of photosensitive paper, a beer can, a place to mount it and a lot of patience.

You can see more examples of his work on his blog.

    Catchy title! Thanks.

  2. It’s very cool to see someone else doing solography. Me and my astronomy club did this about two years ago with film canisters. They worked like a charm and it was a great thing to be doing. It was all for a progect out of Norway, if I have that right. (can’t quite remember). It made our club have the #3 spot for astronomy web sites. But pretty cool to see someone else posting on it.
