It really looks great Lenn. 

What started out as a curious journey resulted in the creation of a work of art!

Hopefully, the discs will arrive this week and we can see how they work.

Regards,
Charlie

Got the discs from Charlie today and they are great thanks again.
They work great but the camera can`t focus right so a poor video.

That extra layer of poly sure made the Praxinoscope shine, good job Lenn !

Shame that the focus wouldn´t stabilize, but the movie gave a good idea nonetheless.

Perhaps the camera works better under different exterior lighting?

This is one of the few things an older smartphone would be good at, since they don´t change their focus distance once they are filming.
I use one here on occasion, to avoid my real camera focusing on closer objects, as one can hold the camera away from obstacles and focus, and then move it back inbetween anything, and it´ll keep the initial focusing distance.

Thanks Jan, I`ll try it again later, as you can see the pictures show through the paper which isn`t good for viewing.
I painted the back black and that helped a bunch.
