Which Heliodon to Use

Options

Which Heliodon


There are at least four heliodon options available to most users. Which method is best depends upon an individual user's situation on a given project at a given time. The four options are:

1. The Ring Heliodon - available through CERES
2. The Platform Heliodon - available through CERES

If the heliodon room isn't open or has been booked by someone else there are still methods that can be used with the user's own resources.

3. Sun-Peg Device under Actual Sunlight (Outdoors)- individual resources
4. Sun-Peg Device under Artificial Lamp (Indoors)- individual resources
Some pros (+) and cons (-) for each method are listed in the right. (This refers to some pics on the old site that need to be brought over.)
