I've been thinking about building a tripod setup which collimates sunlight from a 7" magnifying lens into a very small diamter output, which would be coupled to a 6 ft. fiber optic cable. I'd then like to have a re-collimating lens on the end of the fiber optic cable, so that it would not just scatter upon emission.
Does anyone have ideas of what parts will mate easily (such as correct fiber optic cable I should look for, collimating lens's, and possible lens holders etc.)?
I'd appreciate any help on this project.
