    Hi, I have a competition coming up in a few weeks and I ran into an issue making my plot. Our strip lights use the Altman 5 5/8" roundels. I don't know how I would label those colors on my plot. Would it just be "BLU, RED, CLR, GRN..." or is there a proper way to specify? Please help! Thanks.

    What you have is pretty much correct -- unless there's a clearer designation provided by the manufacturer, or you need to delineate between, say, a clear roundel and a stippled or striped roundel. They really don't have an exact match with a cut of gel, and I think trying to label them that way could possibly confuse someone into thinking you were gelling them rather than using roundels.

    Thanks! I already have them labeled as striped. Just wanted to make sure I was labeling the color correctly.

    For extra brownie points, a note near the hanging position specifying them as "50° Spread" AND "Lines Vertical" or "Lines Horizontal" is nice.

    N.B.: Which do people prefer-- roundel or rondel?

    I prefer 'roundel' since that seems to be the most common terminology used by manufacturers, including Kopp Glass.
