  1. Have been following your blog for a long time now. Also happen to work for AlphaGraphics in SLC. Turned out pretty cool I think.

    By the way dig the site well done on keeping up with everything, always on.

  2. I cant get it to work with anything ( inigma, optiscan, qrafter, neo ) but is SURE is beautiful. Im sure its just the anglet that the photo was taken at.

    I wonder if its the curvature distortion. Its a very interesting math problem.

  3. You found an image! I was looking for one myself yesterday, but couldn’t find one anywhere. It looks good.

    Patrick – it’s definitely the curvature in this image that’s stopping the scan.
