Magic Lantern Questions...

Anyone ever try to make a Magic Lantern before? This taped together version (comprised of a giant coffee can, a coconut water can, bike tubing, an extra camera lens adapter, a piece of magnified glass, some scrap metal), is what I've cobbled together today after hours of experimenting. I'm definitely having problems figuring out the "optics" part of this endeavor- perhaps there shouldn't be TWO pieces of glass for the lens that are both of the magnifying type? Suggestions? Links? Books?
