Colin kindly sent me a copy of Annie Haslam's camera original
which much clearer and shows the 'discs' without any pixel
effects around them. It was also raining at the time which that
photo shows.

He also confirmed that the inserted image is not from the image
posted at his site in his e-mail to me he keyed:

"The inset was an enlargement taken from one of the many copies
of the original I have here, simply to attempt to show the
details on the golden objects (now known to be a lamp unit in
Annie's room). So technically what you have said is correct. The
pixelation/compression ratios etc are different."

Colin added:

"I have suggested to Annie that she should post a photograph of
the light fitting concerned, so that everyone can see how the
pieces fit together."

Which, along with Annie's camera original would certainly be
useful.

Colin left this morning for the International UFO Congress in
Arizona. Which will delay any changes to his site.

All of which is to say my concerns have been addressed.


My thanks to Colin,
