Very impressive....
This is more than just macking pictures.
This is real scientifc stuff and extreemly professional.

Very impressive set-up! Viewing your results it is quite clear that all that is worth the effort!

Wow! Now I understand your amazing work on the flying insects, you have such terrific work here! By the way, you must not be a great friend for the ladies with all these insects around you! ;-)

The GPS write the exact position to every photo. For insects i's importent to kown the exact location. This identification is stored into a database to have an overview of the insects living into a region.

Reminds me somewhat of the PhD of a physicist friend of mine, he spend 3 years building and perfecting his equipment (he wanted to hit an atom with two photons at once) then got all the data in just a few days once he had his tool. You've made a fantastic tool and the incredible photographic results are worth all the time and effort you have invested.

This is my second version for the controllerbox but the laser setup, there I 've sure 6 version or even more. I started in 2005 and have a lot of tests, then into the winter 2005-2006 I rebuild the hole unit. this is now stable and reliable. For the machanical parts I bought a lathe. The electronic is homemade based on an Altera FPGA cyclone chip.

Awesome set up, how long did it take you to build and optimize it?

I walk to the insects, it's just the time to look where the insects sit down on a flower, go to there and try to chase away the insects. At that moment they pass through the laser system and.... picture!
Capture moths give me 250 to 300 pictures into one night. See the gallerie of the moths.

Very srious looking stuff.
And how many months do you have to wait for a bug to fly past your this contraption? You can't possibly track anything with it. I love the neck strap too! That I'd love to see.
Just kidding.
