        Thank you for your informative site on stroboscopes, but I need a 
more instruction for a project I would like to do since I have never
used a stroboscope before.
        Recently,I inherited an electric stroboscope with a dial that 
the flashes per second. I would like to take a photograph of a droplet
of milk as it falls and hits a plate.
        1. How would I do this using the stroboscope and camera? How must 
camera and strobscope be linked to photograph the motion?

        2. How would I determine the proper frequency of flashes needed?

I sincerely apprectiate any answers or links you can provide to help me
carry out this project.
