One of the classics! This is a Martin Ministar 250 light effect. Unit projects rotating white beams of light that moves to the music. Unit uses a 24 volt, 250 watt EVC bulb and features 2 motors. 1 for the rotation of the mirror dish and 1 for the cooling fan. Unit weighs a bit because of the large transformer used to step down the voltage for the bulb. Unit made in Denmark.

Cool classic lights from American DJ. These are Orbit's from American DJ. Version 1 has the smaller round lenses on the top and the version 2 has the 4 dichoric reflectors. Each unit has a constant rotating gobo wheel that spins at a slow pace making the projections change textures while the top "head" rotates to the beat of the music via an internal microphone. The light source is a 82 volt, 250 watt EXY lamp producing plenty of light. Units made in Taiwan.

I picked up these RARE units as I have never seen anything from this company. These were built by Lumen Industries here in the US. I have never heard of this company and I have never seen anything else produced from them. If anyone know any additional info, please contact me. These units are similar to many of the other "mushroom" style units that were popular in the 90's but have larger lenses and have a unique design how they are positioned on the dome. The unit has 2 X 24 volt, 250 watt lamp that rotate to the beat of the music. This unit puts out a ton of light!! Unit made here in the US.

For post number 250 we made it BIG!! Big is what this unit is!! This is a Clay Paky Astrospider unit. This thing is HUGE!! Unit has 4 X 24 Volt, 150 Watt Lamps. Each lamp is located in one of the 4 large domes with 13 lenses on the exterior (Total 52). The 4 domes are connected in the center of the unit with a single motor that revolves all 4 at the same speed at the same time. The 4 heads connect through a set of plastic gears. At the base of the unit is another high torque motor to spin the entire unit. When it is all running, insanity is what you get. Both of the motors and the lamps are on separate circuits for complete control of the unit. Unit made in Italy. Thanks to my buddy Chris for this unit!

Small compact controller for many of the PSL effects. This controls gobo changing for up to 4 different PSL units such as the Janus and others that have the ability to be remote controlled. Each channel has a 3-way switch that has constantly changing, individual select and off position for corresponding units. There is also a master switch to control all 4 channels at the same time. Great unit made in Italy.
