Paul, I'm not your enemy here......I am trying to figure out how it is you don?t see the proof!?...However, in any case, since you seem to be the most "stubborn" of the HC folk on this forum & or to hold HC views...what does it take to show you your wrong?...If you bother to do the experiment within 15-20 min exposures you will see that to suggest it would not make a distinction between the HC & GC views or in other words that you would only see the nightly axis of rotation is entirely untenable....In fact the effects that i have described for you as I have described for you has already been proven to demonstrated both axis the only difference is the real rotational effect is larger and takes longer to record....... I will attach all drawing here so as to keep it all coherent text is on the drawings... ..but the apparatus shown will show star trails on both axis even over a period of 20 min of rotation of both axis and at that even using the real Polaris so as to make moot the nightly affects of Polaris even on a 20 min exposure....? Same motion, same stars, same camera, same everything...?...there is only one possibility left ..the motion as describe by HC does not exist... I cant get over the fact that you claim you see no reason to change your view.....!?..Because your view has been proven to be false..........That is why.....!? Hoping you will come to clarity...........

You had obviously gone to some lengths to do so but your usual style -- words left out etc -- masked what you were trying to get across. I offered to help you clarify the matter -- to collaborate. This was a genuine attempt to help you and in the effort I might have learned something. At the time my understanding from your reply was that you were happy with that offer. Now we have your response (below) to my apology for being tardy in exercising that offer. I can only interpret this as being somewhat hostile. What does it take to be your friend?

Allen D -- I am not seeking to escape from my offer to collaborate in clarifying your illustrations but it does seem the need may have passed. What is your opinion? well if you understand the drawings then what are your arguments against the star trails proof?...i addressed all thoes issues that you keep bring up and i show that any reason against being able to see the annual motion would prevfent you from seeing the nightly motion. and Any valid reason that would allow you to see the nightly motion demands our ability to see the annual motion.....are you conceding....otherwise i missing something..... --------------------------------- National Bingo Night.
