    No backlight for night time hunting ?

    Hi all.
    Soon the weathers going to warm up and the night time hunts will be starting. I have a headlamp , and a light that i could mount to light up just the coil but because i hip mount my unit , i have to stick my chin into my chest to see the screen with my headlamp or adjust then readjust it. No backlight. Most of my huntings on the beach, i prefer the dark untill i get a good signal. Then turn on the light. I was wishing my unit( Fisher CZ6a) had a backlight.
    Well i had a $5 voucher from EBay so i got one of those cheap book lights. Ripped the clip off , put some Velcro on it and boom , instant lit screen.
    Might try it out tonight. If its not to cold !Click image for larger version.

    Clever solution! Good luck.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    If your detector doesn't have a screen then you don't need a back light.
