Light Boxes

I have just recently completed building myself a couple of light boxes and I am very pleased with the results. If anyone is interested in me building one for them, PM me and I can discuss price etc, one thing is for sure, they are going to be at least a third of the price of imported ones, and IMHO work just as well. The two attached images will give you some sort of idea of my construction. My method of construction allowes the light box to fit over the front of the telescope/dew shield, much like a cover so one does not need to balance it on the scope.
I use a 12v lighter type connector for the power, and each LED is rated at between 6000mcd and 12000mcd depending on the size of the box required.
If interested please feel free to ask any questions.

As I said in the email Matt, I was not referring to you, you had the decency to respond on our first contact, which is all I really ask.

Hi Paul, nothing received on my emails mate, but if you have been having mail problems that may be the reason, in any case you only contacted me here a couple of days ago. I was referring to people who ask me for info and NEVER respond. I have no issues with responses taking a while, but what gets up my nose is none at all.

The trend continues, I am getting fed up with sending people quotes for light boxes and they don't even have the decency to acknowledge I have sent anything to them, a bit of common courtesy is not amiss here, at least let me know if you have received my communications.
