Diorama: Part 2 – Night time (same island)   Leave a comment

That diorama unveiled a couple of days ago has night lighting too thanks to light emitting diodes and fiber optic strands.  Yes, that is the Big and Little Dippers in the sky (bright star is Polaris).  Now I know that in the Southern Hemisphere, you’d be seeing the Southern Cross – but I wanted a constellation in my miniature sky that the kids could look outside and see for real (Sometimes I have to relax the ‘authenticity rules’ on personal projects).  Apologies for the blurry/grainy effect on the shots – hard to take good pics with such low light…
