Kitty+disk setup

Kitty+disk setup

One SB600 in the silver umbrella, another on the right. Air canister (to clean the platters every few minutes – even a single dust particle shows up in this light), tripod for the camera.
All photos were taken with manual exposure and manual focus (autofocus didn’t quite cut it in the low ambient.)

The disk platters are highly reflective. You can see the read/write head (the top one, anyway) accross it and the parts that move it to the right. On the far right, that’s an air filter / silicagel combination to, er, filter air and suck up humidity inside the disk. (Disks are NOT airtight, y’know, and dust and moisture are not their best friends.)
