    Seattle Area Get Together was great! Bought a 540 lumen light. Brought a 110,000 lumen searchlight. Beam was decent but out of focus. 24 hours later, the beam can be seen seven miles, even with city lights shining up to the sky. Great photos, I'll post more when I get some sleep. Here are some for now.

    After I got home, I adjusted the Focus, as per IgNITEor's suggestion. Wow!, what a difference. I can see the thing, shining in the sky from seven, (7), miles away!




    Here the Nighthawk is shining out my living room window.

    Yes I have a better camera, and I still use the old one sometimes...now with more skill.

    I can start by maybe selling these reflectors 'with or with-out' any reflecting material on them. $100.00 for 'non-mirrored', unsurfaced, basic fiberglass condition to several hundred dollars or more depending on an agreed on mirror layer and $$$ up to $1,700.00 US dollars for complete searchlight. These are just some ideas I'm considering while looking at the Nighthawk.

    I wish I could give a date. My design is complete but I'm finding that it's taking a lot of time to make the tooling to produce the lights. I'm picking up a Bridgeport knee mill and will be converting it to CNC to make the molds and the internal parts. The cost to do this is not much more than outsourcing everything.

    Thank you for providing so much information about your large reflector projects.

    I am pondering doing something similar myself - for a local November light festival that we have. For me it is not the parabolic mirror that is the problem - I'm confident that I kan make that. I am more worried about the electronic part - I have an enormous respect for the sort of electrical powers that I will need to handle here.

    So, for the circuitry, did you make it yourself or did you buy it professionally made? I noted that you used a ballast and a transforme - how did you figure out the circuitry and how to match them together?

    By the way, I think you can retrieve a nice spherical mirror for the front reflector if you scrap an old slide projector.

    Cheers, Jens

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I bought the Jenbo@ ballast and bulb for only total of $570.00. The 1,200 watt ballast is the only one that 'needs' 240 volts...so that is why the big added on, custom made 120 volt to 240 volt transformer and cooling fan I added. Luckily the ballast has a wide range of voltages and cycles...180 volts to 260 vac range and 48 htz to 66 cycle range, so perfect match not needed. I'm good at 'building things like sockets and high voltage harnesses...originally out of necessity .

    Glad you mentioned the projector, because I did scrap an old projector, and this confirmed my idea of the split reflector idea I had been toying around with. I realized, that if I may make many of these, I would need a regular easy and inexpensive supply. I got spoiled by finding cheap mixing bowls, or dog dishes that were highly polished with the right optics.

    I can now mass produce the basic fiberglass reflector body.

    I look forward to seeing it. I'm often at the balance of either money shortage for projects or time shortage, myself. When I have money, I tend to not have much time and vise vrs.

    Considering that you have done all that research for your project - I feel that I might as well take advantage of it and ask if you would consider selling a reflector to Sweden?

    Regarding the small front reflector, I think it is very umportant that it is exactly spherical so that the light is reflected back exactly through the source in order not have it diverge after the reflection at the parabolic reflector. Otherwise I think it will just create a diffuse halo around the intense beam, rather than contributing to it.

    Cheers, Jens.

    Yes, I would be interested in selling a reflector to Sweden. Would that be the basic shell with or without reflective material added? Shipping and handling is a small issue to be dealt with, etc. The 30 inch reflector isn't perfect, still slight blemishes, but each reflector I make, I get more experienced in the 'little things', that make a difference.

    Limited shop space has made my goal of adding another 'finishing process' that would make the reflector damn close to being perfect, difficult to perform, and thus the slight distortions that prevent a perfect tight beam. I am happy with the results of my efforts, that is having a very powerful searchlight that can seen for several miles, shining in the night sky, hitting clouds, illuminating mountains, canyons or ocean front surfing from a mile or so away. The reflector is very efficient! People have a hard time believing it only uses the power of a hair dryer or small toaster.

    I can sell the basic shell without reflective material added for around a hundred U.S. dollars, plus shipping and handling costs? The added reflective material which has it's own issues the way I do it now, would add another hundred. I am open to suggestions.

    Yes the front reflector needs to be exactly spherical, and positioned accurately. I was lucky in the past to find mixing bowls or dog dishes that were highly polished spheres of an ideal size for staying away from bulb and cool, to prevent tarnishing. Now I am using 'ladles' that are too close to the bulb, heat up and slightly tarnish to a polished brass look. They still work, but not as efficiently. Send a PM

    Thanks. This thing is awesome for what I always wanted in a light. Now I'm making things more 'beta'.

    I want to pose this with the Luxor light in Vegas. Luxor light is actually 40 lights at 7k watts each. I'd like to put 40 of my lights in a parking lot next to the Luxor (40 lights), 'light'. Maybe up the wattage to 2,400 watts HID.

    Here is the converter I use to power the 30 inch NightHawk and any other spotlight using the 1,200 watt HMI high efficiency short arc lamps.

    I often have to convert 120 volts into 240 volts. I bought an inexpensive power converter, partly because of curiosity after reading customer complaints about this very affordable unit, and figured out what the issue was, before I bought it. Sure enough, just like the other customers, it worked well for a short time, then, sparks and smoke. It was indeed thin gauge wiring and cr_ppy components. So for just a few more dollars, I converted it into a reliable and hearty power supply that should last for years!

    Transformer Rewiring



    Here is a look at the 120 to 240 volt transformer I re-wired. The transformer itself is built like a tank, but many users have been plagued by burnouts and product failures do to terrible wiring and cheap parts that smoked and sparked when I used it. This new set-up stays nice and cool, assisted by a cooling fan for hot evenings. Also no smoke and sparks anymore!

    Here is how the 30 inch NightHawk looked Halloween Night. We had more "Trick or Treaters" than ever. Many costumed teenagers. Most said they saw "the Bat Light", (NightHawk) which guided them to treats.

    I will be selling 1,000 watt incandescent, weather resistant, Architecturally pleasing version to individuals on the East Coast area. Awesome!

    Will try to get pics soon.

    One of these lights, as far as I know, will be an Architectural feature on a city house, with the searchlight permanently mounted on the deck, for "showing off" purposes. Because these won't have the HIM 1,200 watt arc light as seen in photo at over 100,000 lumen, instead the incandescent has 28,000 lumen, or about a quarter light output.

    There will be substantial costs reductions and electronic box at base will be eliminated. With incandescent, a more rapid on off light cycle can be tolerated, such as partying college students???

    Here is a CAD compositional of what the production NightHawk may look like...maybe not the "Loud", colors, I will use something like machine green, or international grey commonly used. Any thoughts?

    An AutoCAD 3-D rendering of what the all weather resistant Production model 30 inch NightHawk may look like, minus the "loud" colors. May go for a color as seen on the Tank Lights.

    Very Nice!
    As soon as i read "selling", i wanted to know what these babies would cost!
    I wouldn't be able to afford one, but I don't see why a flashy bright color would bother me. Safety orange, baby blue. If I had one, and it could be anything, it would be orange tiger stripe cammo. But everyone else would prob be happiest with gun metal gray.
    get a "print wrap" and do something crazy, they can do anything. like all these beam shots printed on it, so during the day people still could be impressed. that'd be sweet!

    Thanks for the good words. The NightHawk has been better focused for a more narrow beam. Can be seen over seven miles, in city lighting.

    This is exciting. People in New York wanting to Architecturally, semi-permanently, mount this on their nice house's deck for show and tell! I faded the 3-D CAD rendered photo a little bit, to demonstrate the colors client wants. Bright colors are definitely on the menu.

    Not sure, but the stripped down 1,000 watt incandescent, 28,000 lumen, tempered glass lens with bulb cooling, but none mechanical panning home version is probably going to be around $650.oo. Not too out of site. Price subject to change, depending on...??? ...many things...but around that??

    I've been trying to think of any good reasons to have... well, something eccentric like this awesome spotlight. I can't, except but maybe for one purpose:
    Mark your camp location at The Dunes!

    I've been lucky enough in my life to have ridden out at the Sand Dunes in CA (Glammis, Gordon's Well, and Pismo Beach). There are a plenty of super rich, even Elite rich, Dune goers that spend anything on an attachment to their already uber expensive RV and sand rails. They have lighted balloons, and bright blinking beacons atop of long poles, to mark where their RV is, and find there way back to camp. A spot light would be even better. Never get lost in the desert at night again (well, they have GPS, but now it could break). I would think an appearance at Gordon's Well during a busy holiday weekend (like Halloween) could potentially get a few sales, even pre-sales. Is it possible to design a travel version to fold up? Try to keep logistics and weight in mid and these "Dune Goers" could be an untapped market. especially if it becomes a FAD where one wealthy guy has to ONE-UP his buddy. If I were rich I'd even attach it to my sandrail, not as a headlight ,but to mark my position in the sky (lightweight materials and durability would be important here - IDK, can these bounce around without breaking?). Anyways, these guys already have batteries and generators galore. Maybe add a long distance RF device rigged to turn it on/off, combined with a timer automatically turning it on and off every few minutes. I could see those being options I'd want for Duneing...

    I'm just dreaming... But I've seen how many 'Elite Rich' live, when money is no object, they do get to do some interesting things...

    My mechanic Father in law has a much more budgeted dune setup , old toy hauler and quads, but for $650 I'm going to talk to him about buying one, however incredibly unlikely. I want to ask, if it were a more budgeted 1000w version, what range would someone be able to make out the spot? Even if just barely discernible in the moonlight without city lights.

    Just make it easier to drag around than one of these WWII spotlights:

    Great idea! I actually have a show model that fits easily in my compact car trunk, even on part of the back seat of my car...with passenger seat rolled back and partly reclined, it fits up front too. The model I'm selling at this time is destined to sit outside 24 hours a day in all weather conditions. If a person is careful, I could sell one for maybe a little less, though dust could be an issue...I may install an air filter or heat exchanger...will look into those issues. These stripped down lights would be sold with the understanding that care must be taken and some simple; assembly, dis-assembly done to transport the light...mainly disconnecting the arbor and base...a couple nuts and bolts and maybe a cooling fan....

    Your idea sounds very doable, and out in the desert, the beam should be very visible without all the city lights.

    Let me know...?!.

    Cool Re: The 30" Night Hawk

    Here are some incredible beam shots taken during near full moon New Years Eve 2012-13.

    Here is a picture of the NightHawk aimed off my deck towards Beaverton and Hillsboro.

    NightHawk on deck shining the near full moon New Years Eve with artistic light. Night sky painted with 1,200 watt HID NightHawk Light. View of bulb cooling fan towards camera. Igniter is the small black box taped to the arbor. New Year's Eve 12-31-2012...now morning after: 2013!



    Cool view of NightHawk lighting the New Years Eve Sky for many miles. Beam can often be seen for over seven, (7), miles. Photo shows light beam shining away from camera out to paint the night sky with awesome HID light.

    Searchlight pointed away from us 12-31-12 New Years Eve, photo taken from neighbors driveway.


    This incredible shot of the Orion Constellation, was taken from same spot, I just pointed the camera to my left. The New Year of 2013 started with a great night sky, with a nearly full moon along with a clear dark sky, enabling picture of constellation Orion.

    Orion wide angle shot, taken from same spot as Beam Shot above.


    Here is a similar view taken from nearly a block away of the Beam painting the New Year's sky with exciting light.

    I walked a block away from the Deck location of the NightHawk for this view. Beam aimed away from camera towards TV Hwy.

    View taken a block away from NightHawk Dec.-31-2012-13 Eve, morning. Happy New Year!


    Collage of previous photos. Great artistic shot. This art form known as the 'NightHawk', will be sold as that, an "art sculpture".

    What interest is there in the 1,000 watt incandescent model with front lens for $650.oo versus 1,200 watt HMI, (4xlight output of incandescent.) for $1,400.oo and full model with panning 90 degree mechanism for $1,600.oo and full model with 360 degree panning for $1,725.oo?

    Who wants what?
