   Mine does not have a 24x36 cluster of fiber optics, it is a single
large block of plexiglass. You need to be carefull not to scratch it.

   Also anyone planning on buying one of these, ask the seller if the
tripod adapter is included. The back extends far beyond the bottom cover
anf till not allow attachment to a tripod without this extension.
