We're looking at perhaps running an open source event this year and want to avoid overlap with other events that might attract a similar audience or that we want to attend ourselves. A calendar is possibly the single most unhelpful way to visualise dates, so I wanted something else.
If you turn a year into a clock face, you can just about fit a whole year into 360 degrees. And if you're not overly worried about the number of days in a month (and who would be, for a broad visualisation?) you can stick a months in each 30 degrees, for a total of 12.
This is a continuation of my Telescope cam debugging blog.
Unfortunately it proved rather hard to obtain plastic mounting feet and screws tiny enough for me to be able to put the camera assembly in a small project box. However, I did realised I had a custom fit plastic camera housing to hand - the one I'd just cracked open.
I'd noticed earlier that metallic ring with Zeiss branding on the front of the camera was pretty much the same diameter as the 1½ inch eyepieces and adapters I have. Since I have two adapter rings (I was generously given a second one as part of a kit by mig5) I decided to glue an adapter ring straight onto the camera housing.
