i wasn't happy with the fixing on the flats panel so picked up a scope cover on astrobuy and took out the middle and siliconed onto perspex  ,need to black the outer part but will be a snug fit now

Thats a neat solution.

I like it

i stretched  my flats in apt flats aid and to one side looked like light leakage or something like that ,then this popped up on Astro buy for £8 so should give a snug fit and once the outer area is blackened ,hopefully should do the trick .

I have just bought an 250mm round EL panel from China with 12v powered inverter for £25, and some 5mm frosted acrylic sheets to make one of these, £33 in total, just hope it work well now... 🙂

That’s exactly what I did though I think I still need a sheet or two between panel and  frosted acrylic

mind you need the driver too powered by 12v  

 

the round one never turned up from China via alibaba so got a 25cm  square one and some frosted Perspex off  eBay

Hi,

i bought mine from aliexpress with the 12v inverter, for £26 delivered, which is half the price you can pay here in the UK

here is the link, although it looks like they have gone up to £30 with free delivery...it was delivered within ten days, all good and well packaged.. 🙂

🙂
