Thanks for setting up the discussion group. You folks have fine  products and 
I've enjoyed my initial investigations. A few weeks ago I  received an SQL-L 
through the Globe at Night initiative at _http://www.globe.gov/GaN/_ 
(http://www.globe.gov/GaN/)   in  connection with my work with the Night Sky Network at 
_http://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/_ (http://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/)  .  That's 
part of our ORION-NSN group on their home page.
I also just ordered and received an SQL. I've been experimenting with both  
instruments and think that each has its place, depending on whether one needs  
zenith-pointing averaging usefulness of the SQL or the ability to use the 
narrow  field of the SQL-M.
My question:  I want to monitor the development of light trespass and  sky 
glow by surveying the horizon. Has anyone tried to narrow the field of  either 
instrument yet retain calibration. An add-on lens might work.
Any suggestions?
Dark and Starry Skies,
David Fields
