The Astrolabe as an Artist’s Tool

In this week’s email:

“I use your astrolabe constantly for my artwork, I make extremely long exposure pinhole photographs tracing the suns path over the course of a day to half a year. 

I use your astrolabe to determine rise / set times and declination as well as the transit alt for the sun. Then plan which time of the year a given location will look best. It is absolutely a joy to work with an astrolabe in the field. Sure I could do the same thing with my iphone but I don’t feel like it is in the spirit of pinhole photography. “

I maintain this site as a place to organize my work, I is good to know that there are people out there finding it useful as well.
