Received my lightbox today - what a beautiful job!

As I mentioned to Peter, I would have no chance of succesfully making something like this and after seeing it, definitely not to this level of craftmanship.

Can't recommend this enough enough!!

Just for information, I have now tested a box with a dimmer and it works pretty well in dimming evenly to about half maximum illumination. Should be ok for people experiencing problems with CCD cameras and exposure times for flats. I will post an image of the box I am building that is "dimmed" when I finish it.

Had to have a tumour removed from the base of the tongue. Never smoked in my life. Once the healing has finished then it is on to Radiation therapy My specialist says this is just as an insurance, and no Chemo indicated as being required.

Damn.
Life can go pear shaped pretty quick at times.
I'm glad though, they caught it early enough to keep treatment to a minimum.
Many positive thoughts are heading your way right now.

Pete,

Positive vibes being sent from my way, too. Here's to a speedy recovery, mate.

Also, once you're up for it, I'll be interested in a light box for my FSQ-106N. : )

Thanks for your thoughts people. H, I have all the dimensions etc just made one for Doug. Do you want the dimmer or just standard mate?

H, could you just confirm the outside diameter of your dewshield. Apparently yours is a different model to Doug's FSQ

It is under construction H, weather been aweful here, and freezing in my shed/workshop. Not helped by having radiation therapy every day either.
