Roger that !!

I worked with lighting semi-professionally for years , never 'film/television lighting' but , things like dancefloor/effects/stage lighting I've done.....I'm sure there's only minor differences.

I also have done !work with lasers.



Don't buy a pointer.Buy a blue-ray burner....nice blue 405 nM high output laser.....you can build it into whatever case you want.

You need to check out Candlepower forums if you havnt already !

Wow. Just wow. I mean, I know there's a forum group for everything and anything on the internets, but seeing a forum specifically for lights is still just a little surreal.

SSwilson , you are a CDNForces member I believe , yes ?

I want a tank light....A.K.A. 'Target illuminator'...Do you know where I can buy the good 'surplus/used equipment' ?......I'm not even sure what lights CDN tanks use....

I'm just curious because I've read about/looked into , building a 1 kW Xenon short arc light....these are the same class of lamps that "IMAX" projectors use...They aint cheap =(

My background is aviation, but I'll bet you'll find that landing lights would probably fit the bill, or (these aren't installed on the aircraft any more) one of the original "identification" lights from the original CF-18s.

Quote:
The most visible difference between a CF-18 and a US F-18 is the 600,000 candela night identification light. This spotlight is mounted in the gun loading door on the port side of the aircraft. Some CF-18s have the light temporarily removed, but the window is always in place
source: CF-18 Hornet

Haha , That aint even close.

Thx tho !

That's just a mildly powerful 'hotwire' bulb.

The beast i'm after has a US military designation of AN/VSS-3 ....It's a 1kW xenon short arc lamp.I think the CDN tanks use the same one , im not sure tho....

It's in excess of 100 million candlepower.It can 'illuminate targets' 20-25 Km away .

OMG, sswilson mentioned strapping the present spotlight on a 50 cal for deer jacking - forget that - Braineater would just have to turn on the 1kw xenon lamp and all of the deer's bodily fluids and functions would evacuate.

Braineater, what do you plan on powering the xenon lamp with, household electricity?
The power grid will love you!!
