LEDs for Beginners Video Description

Thank you so much for your very good Instructable on LEDs! I need to build a large array of IR emitter LEDs to light my yard at night and use a CCD camera to catch a jerk who's been Night Golfing in my yard. I have a collection of about 15 golf balls he's left behind Good ones, Titlist and Nike, mostly. I may start selling them on the Internet..... (This reminds me of "Mitch Cumstein" from Caddyshack!) I plan to get a perfboard and solder it up, using your information and a nice adequate power supply. I'll have to calculate the value of the total load at operation levels, so as not to over drive them, and burn them out early... I plan a white reflector behind the array as my house is white and it would camouflage it from being seen at night. They won't t see the IR anyhow, only the CCD camera can. One place you CAN get lots of good stuff ( I DO NOT WORK THERE OR HAVE TIES WITH THEM ) is a place I have bought the odd hard to find part from is a company in Miami called Dalbani Electronics. They have the run of the mill stuff too! They can get almost ANYTHING. And their prices are NOT astronomical, and are way more reasonable than at ShadyoRack. (I used to work for them, and won't buy there ever again.) I went by to find the price of a 357 button cell for a TI-30XA calculator. They sell for $5.99 for ONE. I found a five pack at Dollar General... Mercury Free, $1.00 for five.... Never pay retail if you can help it. For the two I needed, I could have bought a new calculator....
