Thread: Some of my lights...

    Default Some of my lights...



    A few pics show the Nighthunter with short arc and a few with 70 watt HID mod.

















    The VSS-3A before. I removed the cylindrical horn. Not certain of its purpose though. It had a fresnel lens, and what looked like a IR detector inside.

    No the tank is not mine, but the light looks so cool on it..

    Well, considering that 'heat death' for our universe is predicted to be something like 10^100 years from now, not quite 'never' ...

    eyesonfire, How many times have you said, "That's not a flashlight. THAT'S A FLASHLIGHT!!"?

    Looks to me you would do well to check out the Lemax SuperPower. Would fit in nicely with your collection.

    It is a very nice HID light, that throws like a short arc. Have you seen this light?

    Yes, quite a few of us have purchased them, myself included. Couple threads in this section also on the light. I have a "beamshot" thread, however my photo skills are pretty bad.

    10 of us are in the final stage of an "85 Watt ULTRA" Upgrade to our Lemax's by Dan at XeVision. That thread is in this section also.

    I'm no salesman, just thought it would be a nice addition to your arsenal!

    Nice lights!

    Used to work in an electronics maintenance shop in the service and recall
    seeing a quite a few of the tank searchlights come thru.
    We had several people in the shop, most all were radio or teletype repair.
    Only had one guy who MOS was Special Devices Repair who was responsible for searchlight and
    other unique device repair.

    The spotlight is great. What is the average luminaire length? The filament lasts long? Does not heat up strongly?
