Found something interesting, while rotating the HID reflector/lamp on my Mozo ultra light,
I noticed dramatic tint change. 6000K bulb could look warmer than 4300K when I rotate the lamp/reflector by 180 degree.

Then I tried rotate the Whole light, the tint changes too, but not as obvious.

I wonder why?

Try slowly rotate your HID light, see if the tint changes.
If this is real, perhaps one can get ideal tint by rotate the lamp orientation on spot lights?

I get that on my HID spotlight if I rotate it. On mine, not all of the salts vaporise for a few minutes. If I rotate the light before they've fully vaporised, I get a tint shift. The shift is only temporary, and it only works in the first few minutes. After the bulb is good and hot, it doesn't happen any more.
