Hi there Dave,

    Just a few thoughts. What does the output fft look like if you a) 
substitute an equivalent resistor for the coil and b) then reduce the gain of 
the input amplifier to unity? The noise below 0.05 Hz looks a bit high and I 
was wondering if it was due to the low pass filter, or to ambient noise? 
Filters made using OpAmps may have a lower inherent noise.

    Could be magnetic or mechanical or both. Did your fft represent the 
quietest period or was it average over the day?

    Hope the comment is helpful,
