Martin SuperMoon 2 Giant Moonflower

Super sized moonflower unit from Martin. This is a SuperMoon 2 unit with controller. This is the same as the regular SuperMoon, but adds a dedicated controller and variable speed motors. The unit has a 24 volt, 250 watt ELC bulb with a HUGE mirror drum behind it for projection. The mirror assembly is attached to to the chassis with 3 large springs. This allows the unit to shake from an additional motor mounted to the top of the mirror plate. The motor has a piece of heavy metal that is off centered to create the shaking effect. Lastly there is a large color wheel with gels attached on the front of the unit allowing 5 different colors and split colors as well. All of the motors speeds are adjustable from the controller. You can tell this unit is pretty old from the flat ribbon style connection cable between the controller and the light unit. Direct audio can be connected to the controller for sound to motion operation on a selected motor or all motors via switches on the front panel. Currently super expensive Maxon rotation motor is having a gearing issue and parts are on order for repair. Fully operational soon!! Unit made in Denmark.

NESS Micro Flower Unit

One of the favorites! This is the Micro Flower from NESS. This unit was also sold from VEI as the GEM unit when NESS went out of business. The unit uses a common 120 volt, 300 watt 64515 halogen lamp with a multi-colored mirror dish that is located behind it. The dish rotates to the beat of the music from an internal microphone located at the rear of the unit. Light made in Taiwan.

Sapro MI Light Beams LSS 100 Unit

Original compact moonflower light from Sapro. Looking at older catalogues it was also named the Laser Light System 100. Unit uses a 12 volt, 100 watt Osram 64623 EVA lamp mounted in front of a dish of tiny mirrors. It looks like the mirrors were colored at one time but the color has been burnt off of the glass over time. The unit his sound activated from the microphone on the rear of the unit. Direct audio connection through a 1/4" connector is also available on the rear of the unit for sound triggering. The output is very tight and crisp beams of light. I changed out the original front plastic convex lens with a new glass one. The original actually was melted on one side from too much heat. Unit made in France.

Another RARE unit from the BLUERED Company. This unit features an internal dichoric color wheel and gobo wheel that rotate opposite of each other to the beat of the music. On the top of the unit there is dual rotating scanning heads that move to the beat of the music as well. The light source is 2 X 120 volt, 250 watt ENH halogen lamps that are located behind the wheels inside the unit. Very cool unit with vibrant colors. Fixture made in Italy.
