Barbara - I think you are thinking of an epidiascope. I remember a large one when I was a child that they used to project pages from a book.

No, the things we had were called light scopes, I'm 99% sure. What we had were small, about 6" tall. It was like 2 cylinders connected with kind of a hinge at the bottom. You looked through one of them, and when you pulled the other one away from it the light came on. I think that side was also where the batteries were. These didn't project anything, you just looked down through them. They didn't have a screen like the picture we are trying to guess has. It just reminded me of it That said, when I looked light scope up, what I found were more like telescopes, but evidently the manufacturer of what we had chose to call them that.

We have to wait for YT to render his verdict.

What and where is this?

(I put this up once before and the mods took it down, I had to show them legal language that said Google Earth images are ok to use in this manner. Only stipulation is you retain the copyright on the image.)

Huh. I find that more interesting than the picture

I thought anything on the internet was fair game. Otherwise you could not copy and save it, like some websites have a "lock" on their pics and text. This gets bantered around on other forums, too.
