    Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! This currently does not meet our criteria for an Instructable. A completed Instructable:

    - details a finished project with instruction (not just links to instructions)
    - has clear images that you took of your project (web-found clip-art is not acceptable)
    - uses proper spelling and grammar
    - contains appropriate cautions or safety considerations
    - does not violate someone else's copyright
    - does not violate the Instructables terms of service
    - is typically written about something you are very passionate about and want to share.

    If this is a comment, a question, a small tip, or something that cannot truly be a finish project, please post it as a forum topic. If you are looking to start a collaboration, post a topic in the forums. Look here for tips on writing a great Instructable.

    So, it has been unpublished. Please do not republish until it has been corrected. When you republish, if everything is fixed, I'll remove this note. Multiple attempts to republish without correction will result in deletion.

    You don't need to put a white dot in the middle... You just have to have a certain point to focus on in the middle.
