    That's what I was thinking!! Put it on a base and use it as a desk light!!

    Nawww... not on your desk! Install it in your garden and appreciate it for what it was intended. It really is a lovely fixture amongst all the greenery.

    Makes a truly REMARKABLE 'gift' for your best clients.

    Once again, you are incorrect.

    I order all of my Deliter fixtures with a wedge base socket and a 921 or 912 xenon lamp. The xenon lamps outperform the SCB lamps and tuck up into the bell of the fixture higher so to reduce any glare when the fixture is installed on elevations.

    This is just one simple example of how willing Nightscaping is to work with the contractors to deliver a custom product to our specifications. Since I made this change to the product, it has pretty much become standard for most of the contractors here in Ontario to order the fixture this way.

    Don't be so sure of yourself all the time Pete. It has a way of looking bad on you.

    The Stellar does well on the gutter mounts, but I recently began using
    the Vista GR-2207 with a frosted lens. Nice muted light source, mr-11 gives it a nice punch and the frosted lens evens it out. I usually get it in a color that matches the roofing material. It blends in better.

    As for the bronze vs. aluminum......live and live. I have used it all for many years. My aluminum fixtures are still working (even at the beach!!!).
    The brass and bronze fixtures may last longer on the outside, but check out the internals......socket wire jackets flaking off, sockets turning to dust, and I must say....mr-16 mirror coatings do not last as long in those brass and bronze "hot house tanks". They hold too much heat.

    Am I the only one that has seen this?? Let me know.......

    I dunno about that. The GE's I pull out of those little copper branding irons look pristine even after a few yrs. Guess it depends upon the lamp brand then.

    I've been reading through some of these posts, and I'm finding this forum quite interesting? Pete, do you have some kind of chip on your shoulder, or is it your purpose in life to give everyone you meet a bad time? I noticed you have a lot of information to spew, but what is the name of your company?
    Thank you,
    Jesse
