    Adapting a fresnel to an 11x14 Chamonix?

    In cleaning up I came across an 11x14 fresnel lens that I thought that I had sold off years ago. I always liked to just view the plain GG on my 11x14, but now I'm considering adapting/mounting the fresnel on the back of my Chamonix. Has anyone ever done this? Instead of "reinventing the wheel" I'd much prefer to copy how someone else has done this. I have a mini milling machine, so making adapters or clips would not be a problem. Attached image of the adaption would be most appreciated.

    You can just tape it to the back of the GG and see how it covers your viewing angle... If ok, you can figure out a non-destructive way to mount/hold it to the GG (velcro, magnets, ???) so it is removable at will...
