Kermorvan lighthouse - completed


Bernhard Schrock
This time I plan a rotating white light. Because the mechanical rotation is too complicated I intend to use this time too my best friend CMOS 4017. I will use 10 white SMD LED's mounted in a circle. 10 capacitor and 10 additional resistors help to simulate soft change between the LED's for better simulation of a rotating beacon.

Bernhard, I am also working on a very basic circuit for tiny LEDs. Not nearly as complicated as yours. I am following this process with interest.

Hi mates. Thank you for interest. Just finished the LED array. First I prepared a piece of 0,8 mm thick plastic with 10 sides and CA glued the LED's in place. At second I bend a circle of 0,4 mm wire and soldered them on the underside to the (common) cathodes. They are 2 groups of thin flexible wires because I had no enough different colors.

You should include a short video here (Youtube works) of your wonderful lighthouse electronics 👍, after the lighthouse itself is finished. Also for the Elbe one.

bughunter: A good idea with the video, thx. I am lucky to have in the house a very good filmmaker (my son) 🙂. We set up a scenery with the original background in Hamburg and simulated evening light. The video (raw material) and the photos were imo very successful. We have already an idea for the YouTube video.

Hats off to you. Beautiful craftmanship.

Thank you Hanno, Villiers and Jürgen. Today I managed the last task: installing the beacon in the light-housing. It works perfectly and the board fits very well into the tower. Now I have only the last 195 m to run🙂

Let there be light ! Superrealistic depiction of the brickwork 👍
Extra praise for the flag ! 👍

Good morning Ben, indeed I plan a short video similar to the video concerning the LH Bunthäuser Spitze. I hope that my son will help me.
Hanno: thx for you nice comment!
