    I think that's called Novatac
    But then again, we could discuss aesthetics, and include that to the incredible quality control.

    Also, I don’t disagree that they are expensive. But I understand why and don’t see it as unfairly priced. I think that is an important distinction.

    If I like this one more than the green I’ll probably sell the green. No way I’m getting rid of my fully diffused reflector so one will reign supreme. Haha

    The double beryl sale seems to have sold out within 3 minutes of it going live. A true testament to the fine engineering of their products. Very impressive.

    Actually, it was just under 60 seconds. Will have the exact time soon. Henry is now confirming the orders and sending confirmation emails.

    Congrats to those that got one

    All confirmation emails have gone out. Now the emails for the unlucky ones.

    They sold out in exactly 50 seconds.

    The Double Beryl will most certainly be made again. I want one. I let the one I was testing and using so that 20 could go out the door in order to have one less unhappy person. I'm old. I'm used to disappointment.
    The Double Beryl though will NOT happen again until next year. Next run is orange for October then Blue for November. Have another green phosphor that looks quick promising... massively bright with a long glow time as well. Maybe that for December, then the Double Beryl again in January. We will see how it goes.

    How are you making out with your plans for your totally defused reflector?

    I thought the double beryl was made with an old bag of nichia phosphor powder you guys found in the closet. So I guess nichia still makes it? Or you didn't use it all?

    Hogo, just want to give you a shout out, kudos, big thumbs up...not just for bringing all this great stuff to us but also for remembering to include the lense o-rings in my double-beryl order. I figured I’d wait for Henry’s email confirmation but got doing things and....we’ll...thanks.
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    We are now going to include both O-rings with every lens that gets ordered. Seems to be the best way to do it.

    Are you going to made another run of this one? I want some of this one and not the others. I tried to get one of these but am very very slow and you guys have fingers made of fire!
