What wave is saying is that he reproduced JLW's out of focus results himself. Personally I don't need to see wave's examples as anyone who has messed with scopes knows what out of foucs objects and defraction rings look like. If you have any opportunity to look through a scope sometime you'll see exactly what wave is referring to without even really trying

Originally posted by waveguide3As for the 'ships', this is what I said:
"So what the heck is it? Well I reckon it's done with mirrors. Possibly there's a pane of glass involved and maybe a double-glazed window. Whatever he uses, these are multiple distorted images of a small reflective object or model illuminated with a torch/spotlight. There's a lot of specularity and blurring which generates a wide focal depth. Nothing is ever in focus no matter how hard you try. I've managed to duplicate this effect using my own 10" Meade and a CCD camera. I started off making tinfoil and wire models, but quickly realised that much of the imaginary detail seen in these vids is created by the way reflected light mixes as it passes through a windowpane or when reflected from a household mirror."
