A very interesting site with some unusual Fresnel lenses and lens makers.

I do not know how other people on the board feel but I for one am learning a lot by reading the posting on Lighthouse Technology. I am glad that this area of interest is getting new postings. From my limited knowledge it appears that is topic has many subjects that can be written about.

I admit my knowledge in this area is limited and sometimes I do not follow everything that is being posted. Some of the pictures have been a huge help in my understanding of what is being written. I guess I will just have to ask questions about some of what is being posted.

Epona,

Please do join in the questioning. I am sure there are many people out there who may have technical questions and have been reluctant to ask them. We all gain in knowledge when questions are asked and answered. I have found many valuable insites and Internet resources that I did not know existed until I joined Lighthousing.net and that was only a month ago.

Please ask away!!
