Leslie....looks like an interesting device...checked it out on their website. I've never heard of it or seen one before so sorry, can't give you any kind of recommendation.

I believe this is a Camera Lucida.

My grandmother had one of these. I think it was about 25 years ago that I last saw it. I once tried to ask her if she still had it, but she didn't know what I was talking about. She also had a hinged tracing/copying device. I don't remember what they're called. I guess my memory isn't much better than my grandmother's.

I don't even know what it is...but I remember seeing it once on a list of "things I bought and never use" artist list!
