I'd do this myself but my furnace just isn't set properly for it, anyhow looking at his post here: HARMON MAGNUM STOKER PROPER BURN

That is nearly what I want. What I would suggest is if the camera was a little lower and zoomed in a little more. Secondly as you see he used one with and the other without flash. If it would be possible to get two images similar to those I'll probably have what I'm after. If you try the tow images I'd suggest using a tripod or placing your camera on stable object so the imges are exactly the same except the flash. I'll be able to merge the two to get some good flame and some nice shiny color on the coal.

I'll try that on my Keystoker this weekend - gotta find my tripod..... I think my wife will be up visiting her parents in Wisconsin with our son this weekend (and I'll be babysitting our two English Cocker Spaniels), so she won't complain when I smell up the house by leaving the door open on the stove while I take the pictures. :sick:

Sorry, I can't burn mine anything like that or it would put me right out of the house. It's 28* outside and 90* + in the basement and the stove is idling. ???

Why would you need to send the camera out to make a disc unless its film?
