I was REALLY impressed with the Canto Astro 500 LED spot. It's always hard to tell without having them side by side, but this may be the best LED follow spot yet for a school or small to medium theater. It's VERY bright, feels really good. It's light weight! One person can lift it. Quiet. Cool. Energy efficient. I was very impressed with both the dimmer and the iris. Both looked really good. It just feels great. Best of all they said if there's a future upgrade you'll be able to remove the LED engine and upgrade for the new one. If you have an incandescent version of this spot you can buy just the LED engine. The street price will be around $4,000 depending on the usual pricing factors.
