View Thumbnails

Showing the laser beam. 20 second exposure on most pictures.

The bright spots in the laser beam are the result of dust in the air crossing the beam over time.

Laser is supported by the clip. You can see Kosh sat up in the last few seconds of the exposure.
Looking at the emitting end of the laser. The laser is still supported by clips. The object to the left of the laser is a flashlight with a nice shadow cast on the wall. The TV is on and tuned to The Mummy Returns on USA.

View of the black construction paper target from above. My brilliant choice of shooting at an angle makes the picture uncropable without rotation.
