Thermo-Electric Cooling System (or the Peltier module)

My first prototype of a thermo-electric cooling system (or the Peltier module)

It’s been cloudy here in the Philippines for a week now, so I decided to continue instead with with one of my pending projects: the thermo-electric cooling system (or the Peltier module). I intend to use it to cool down the sensor of my DSLR. This is my first time to setup one and I do not have any experience at all with this kind of stuff. So far I was able to lower the temperature to 12 deg C, from an ambient of 33.2 deg C. I just learned today that even the slightest obstruction in the airflow could mean a difference of 1 deg C. Will continue to tweak this prototype and hope to I could still improve it in the cloudy nights to come :)
