First let me say hello... very interesting site you have here. Second let me say when it comes to lighting I am a newb.... greener than green. And your site is quite overwhelming.
That said I found this link Followspot Survey which talked about followspots. And I found it very informing but it doesn't address my issue exactly so I figured I would just ask.
My church just had a Christmas production and we had to borrow a followspot. The spot showed up 3 days before the performance. All things considered we had one spot "foo pah" and the performance wnt off pretty good.
Now, I want to buy a followspot light for the church so we don't have issues like this again. So I would like to delve into the acumulated knowledge of this forums members and get some input. It is a small church, probably 50' to the stage from the spot room above the sound booth. The stage itself may be 20' deep. Probably not... people were almost falling off the stage. Anyway, it will probably be used AT MOST three times a year. We will probably loan it out to other places if asked. But no one asks us for anything and this town is so small I don't think anyone else even has a stage except maybe the HS. And they probably have a followspot.
So, nuts and bolts of the question is - what do you recommend for a followspot for a small church that I can buy and give away?
And where can I buy one?
And for those who are curious... I'm the sound man :j
Oh yeah, thanks for reading my long winded post and for any suggestons you may have
