A journey to search my soul

Introducing you my new toy - CEELITE LEC Panel!!! This is a cool stuff. It is similar to a light box except in a thin portable panel.
I was first introduced to this gadget during my Islamic Codicology course in Cambdrige University recently. This panel is placed beneath a manuscript paper and the light will project out through enabling us to identify type of paper whether it is oriental vs western, analyzing laid line vs chain line as well as finding out if there is any watermark or other mark which couldn't be seen under normal lighting.
I ordered this item from Ceelite distributor company based in USA. I have now 3 different size of panels - A3, A4 & strip. These panels will enable me to work with different size of manuscripts which are in my possession. I am happy with this product.
