this is the hoist that gets us from lower deck to the roof of tower





then we can admire the views!






































one more on the way home....


A slight aside - someone mentioned earlier in the thread about digitally enhancing slides.

I've got several boxes of 35mm slides which I'd love to have on computer. I tried to scan them myself but it was very laborious and the results weren't very good either.

Can someone recommend how this can best be done please? I'll happily send them off & pay for them to be done professionally.

If I could manage to get my ass in gear I would be able to offer to do this for you - I have a Nikon Coolscan 5000ED with slide feeder attachment which allegedly takes up to 50 slides at a time. It's a dedicated film scanner with 4000dpi resolution which I presume is as good as you could ever want - short of having each slide image over 100mb file size!

I'll try to give it a go this weekend - but I've been threatening to do this for ages!

That's very kind of you Peter! I'd be very interested to know how you get on with this device. Might make sense for me to get one myself.

Whoops! Just looked at the price. Maybe not...

Well, I managed to give it a whirl and it worked without any problems - 38 slides were inserted and automatically fed through whilst I watched the boy racers on the goggle box. I'll have to read up on how to optimise the scan files but each tiff image is circa 65mb and contains plenty of detail.
