      I bought the Disney countdown at Lowes back in November.  Worked great and is well built.  However, I had to return it twice and exchange it for one that worked.  Out of the box it was a blur and could not be focused no matter what.  But when I got one that worked, it worked great with no issues!

      Do you have a link to some pictures of the band project you built a few years back?  We are wanting to do something similar.
