The kind that you screw in or wrap around the tree. Also what did you use on top of the colums? And how did you get the wire and mount the light fixture. Thanks.

Thanks for the info Tim....I went out a little last night and applied those settings to my camera...AMAZING what kind of difference it made! It turned total darkness into almost daylight!

What kind of lights did you use on the under the eaves there? They look flush-mounted?

Sleepyhead, I used the screw mount with stainless steel screws.

Columns, I ran the wire in the gutter. I drilled 2 holes. 1 above the gutter through the facia down at an angle into the soffit cavity. I then drilled a 1" hole in the soffit and chased the wire from the gutter out through the hole in the soffit. The fixtures are Vista 2116 copper directional spot with a 20w BAB bulb and frosted lense. I mounted the fixture to a round copper flush mounting canopy.

Hey Chris... you learn something everyday! All along I thought it was Bill Locklin from Nightscaping in California who invented LV landscape lighting some 50 years ago or so. I had no idea it was some dude with poor grammar from Long Island. Wow, all my dreams and aspirations seem to be shattered now.

What is your experience with this? Have you ever tested a 60 deg. bulb side by side in a 384 vs. something with a very open lens like a 15381? I need to do this soon to resolve my curiosity, but I thought you may have already done so. I know that you can put a lens on the fixture to stretch the beam, but I'm mainly concerned about the fixture itself with no lens or accessories.
If anyone else would like to chime in, please feel free. Thanks in advance.
Hey there Chris, I use a lot of 60 degree lamps in the 384 and 087 fixtures and have started using a lot of 484 and 494s. I have not done a side-by-side comparison with the 381 but I can tell that there is a vast difference between the 36 and 60 degree beams in the fixture. The cowling may cut off a little of the outer beam but not enough to worry about.

My ego is not such that I cannot share the glory. Ok I will admit I co-invented it with Mr. Locklin.

HPL? what's that? If it's a compliment I'll take it.
