Integration Randy & Shelley Knapp

This handheld kaleidoscope has several variations within the series.  First there are variations of the body at different price points.  The standard body in solid maple and walnut was a lower price than the bodies made from exotic solid woods.   Both versions have a black anodized aluminum turning end and a dark wood turned eyepiece.  They have a turning end with a fluid cell, side lit with a black background.

The cell contents are the other variable available.  They came with a bright image, a pastel image, a SeaShora image with sea shells from the Oregon beaches, and a bright image with a prism filter.  An order form from 2001 indicated that you could get a maple scope with a pastel image, a walnut scope with a bright image, or a exotic wood scope with either a pastel or a bright image.  These cells also contained Lucini’s.  All the bright and pastel cells had dichroic windows but nit the SeaShora or prism filtered scopes.

They have 2M/6P tapered mirror systems.
