Stolen acessories at SoCal Astronomy Expo

I had some accessory equipment that was stolen from the West parking lot behind Oceanside Photo & Telescope in Oceanside, CA during the early evening of Saturday, July 28. This was during the evening star party. Taken from my table was a plastic bag containing a piece of transparent red plexiglas, 9.5 by 15 inches, and a notebook computer keyboard lamp with a red filter on it. Additionally, there was a smaller piece of translucent red plex that was designed to go over keyboard lights.

The red plex was custom-cut to fit my notebook PC, and was very hard to replace.

I'm sorry to hear about this Matt...
It is VERY SAD to see that even in our nice Astro Community there are some "bad apples".

My fear is that the items that were taken are very small, and it would be VERY HARD to identify WHO could have them... :S
