    I made one with some microscope slides and so far cannot get it to work. I
    am going to Kennebunk Port Maine this weekend and a friend up there has one
    that he says works. He is going to let me try it out on Sunday when we go
    for a ride with the boat. The idea sounds great, we will see.
    All the best,
    Robert Gainer
