March Photo Challenge - Entries (Please Post them here)

The Topic this month is : "Something that Spins"

Remembering we are in the Terrestrial Photography Forum, so I would imagine that excludes the obvious - Planets etc..

Reminder ...
* This thread is only for posting your entry, together with any comments/explanation/details you'd like to issue concerning your own photo.
* comments on other peoples' entries, or "other" shots of your own you'd like to share, can be posted in the Comments and Rejects Thread -> HERE.
* only one entry (that's just one image) per person (but you can change it out at any time if you get a better one)
* the image must be your own work and
* all other normal forum rules, and image size limits, apply.

The image doesn't necessarily have to be taken this month, but in the spirit of the challenge, we encourage you to get out and get into it.
In this regard, YES, the image may be one that you have submitted to a previous photo challenge, unless of course it has already been voted a winner.

The winner of the public vote, which will be run at the end of the month, will get to choose next month's topic and have their photo added to our "Photo Challenge Hall of Fame".

Good Luck!

Unitron Unihex

This is a Unitron Unihex (rotary eyepiece selector) off my Polarex Unitron 6" refractor. It spins around and locks into six different positions and holds 4 x 1", 1 x 1.25" and 1 x 2" eyepiece. The selector is now over 50 years old.

Chai's Spinning Cat Toy

There was blood involved in this.... mine!
Each time I spun it, Chai's claws were quickly on top of it.
I probably should've let the blood drip on the floor to make this shot a little more interesting .
