Clarification please
Very neat circuit, and I can see applications for comparing temperatures as well.

But the output is given as VIN x 50K x ((1/LDR1)-(1/LDR2))

Yet in the scope traces, VOUT only appears when VIN is zero.

So why wouldn't you ground VIN permanently and just use the polarity of VOUT as your indicator?  Is there any point in changing VIN?

I get the feeling I am missing something here (happens a bit... :-)
