Browsing through the circuits, I came across this one, which will be ideal for a modelling project I am building at present.
It is the Polar Lights kit of the spaceship Spindrift from the 1960s Irwin Allen TV series Land of the Giants.
However, the fade rate is too fast for my needs, it needs to be reduced to half (or more) of its current speed.
A couple of questions:
If I change the resistor (assuming the 33k resistor is the timing component) for a higher value, will that give me the result that I'm after?
For the project, the circuit will need to power up to four high-brightness LEDs.
Is this possible without modifying the circuit?
Sorry for the silly questions... I am returning to electronics after a long absence, and I can't remember what does what on a 555 circuit!
