    It looks great with the matching colors of the tritiums.
    This unique Thud LT Rosé was custom anodized by the machine shop owner. He did another anodized in Gold.

    The picture above by Franz is representative of the actual color of the light

    Thanks for the clarification. Its very well done, so evenly anodized that its difficult to tell that it isn't a raw metal.

    It is a beautiful light indeed. Franz is a lucky man!

    There are some amazing pictures of amazing lights in this thread.

    I don't want to derail the thread from its purpose, but there really doesn't seem to be a photography sub forum I can ask in. Could members taking these pictures show, or describe their setups for photographing these lights? Light box, cloth, glass plates, soft box, lighting, etc.

    I'm ok with PM's just to keep it minimized within this thread but others may benefit from it as well.

    Again, awesome job! The trits really stand out which looks great.

    Thanks.

    Actually, there is a photography sub forum here on CPF.

    No problem - I also missed it at first. Aside from that, you are welcome to send me PMs with any questions you have about the pictures I've posted.

    I was told that it was done with the pretty expensive PVD process, and the coating is pretty hard & durable.

    Not the best picture of a Tain but it's my first Piccolo, blue trit, blue glow, mint condition, so nice!

    We needed a picture on this page and all of this came today

    Those switches look amazing. The polished metal and the tritium vials take something that ought to be banal and uninteresting and make it the focus of attention. Superb.

    Great pictures Dave. I like the gradual transition of the DOF in the top picture.
    In addition the exposure is now such as one might realistically see at dawn/dusk where both the Titanium as well as the glowing tritiums can be seen at the same time. You have captured a realistic representation of the brightness of the tritiums at such a time.

    Agreed! That's why I couldn't resist posting a cropped close-up of them as well.

    Thanks guys! Daniel: this picture was shot using a 10 second shutter speed. It's the first time I've tried one that short and it definitely does give a different look. I also like gradual DOF shots like that.

    Thanks for the tip Dave, I'll bear that in mind for trying to capture the tritium vials realistically. What was the F setting and the ISO?

    Those photos were shot at f/10 and ISO 100. For future reference, all the EXIF info for my photos is available on Flickr. Once you click on the image to take you to the Flickr web site, click on the three dots in the lower right corner and select "View Exif info".

    Stunning Dave, I wish I'd ordered one now. :-)
    Great pictures, all of them, but I especially like the 2nd and 3rd.

    Thanks much Daniel. I'm definitely a big fan of close-ups like that. I love all the detail they reveal!

    I'm sorry you didn't get one, but you have plenty of other very nice lights to be happy about.

    Another Hyperlux arrived to add to my collection. It has been upgraded to XM-L2 for even more output and throw.
    Its the one on the left in the picture immediately below featuring the 2 Combat Hyperluxes.

    Beautiful Franz. I like the bronze anodization of the Damascus and the orange/red tritium combination.
