I found a flaw in my plan. If I try a one or two month long exposure, I'm not having my camera. I was so focused on how to setup the whole Schmutz.... 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤪

It must be an extremely small pinhole, or you're shooting the night sky?

In bright sun you can shoot pinhole photos handheld if you just nudge the ISO up a bit.

Here is my 2018 World Pinhole Photography Day entry, shot handheld at 1/100 sec.  Not sure which cap I used, but it's something like f/333.

My 2021 entry, 1/8 sec with a tripod.
