    Anyone on the fence about these, just get one! They are so cool to have at night, handy for moving about the house, and Fred's work is top notch!

    Very cool idea, I love mine!

    Fred,

    What is the runtime and does it take rechargeables?

    Maybe you should put some of those copper slices in these

It will scuff if it comes in contact with anything metal; however, I can include some of the sanding paper for touch-ups.
    Hi Fred,

    that sounds good. That`s my favorite. Please one in this version.

    Greetings

    Please put me down for a grooved brass one. I went back and forth and the stainless is maybe prettier, but the brass looks more "magical". Almost like something from Hogwarts' .

    Talking Re: Luce de Notte

    OK, this looks too cool to pass up... So I'll take one. I'd like a setup pretty much like Olaf_S's - bigger diameter, 27 mm reflector, two tone aluminum body, flat topped diffusor. Trit color - surprise me, either one will work. One question though - could you do a grooved brass in the larger diameter? Please post or PM and let me know if that works and what the total cost is either way.
    THANKS,
    Greg

    Sorry to say, but I am now SOLD OUT on the Luce de Notte.

    However, if you have your own Tritium sphere, you may order a Luce of your choice and deduct $40 from the prices shown above. You will have to mail me your sphere, since the H3 sphere is epoxied to the reflector with optical adhesive.

    Fred, I like the look of #1 in the third pic (first groupshot pic), kinda fancy aluminium I think, I'll take one of those please. Happy to cover any additional if not covered by the price advertised.

    Karl,

    You need to slow down and read the first post thoroughly, and there you will find this:

    The Titanium version uses a 27mm reflector, all other versions use a 20mm reflector, so they are smaller in size.

    And the last time I checked, 27mm is larger than 20mm.

    Yes, but I would suggest the larger size of Luce--a 27mm reflector, either in the Ti version, or the Large AL version (custom size).

    Karl,

    You just really do not want to read post #1, do you?

    Because, if you had read it, you might have seen this:

    I do not expect the Tritium spheres until February, and then I will make the Luci after that. Estimated realistic delivery dates--March through April.

    Bolded and red text added for emphasis.

    Nah, guess I don't want to read the post. Honestly, so little time I have available anymore to get on the forums. It seems I really don't have the TIME to read but still have retained the interest...

    Received word from B@rt that the spheres are in the mail.

    I have been working on the bodies in the meantime, so progress has been made.
