Altman AFS-500. LED and can throw up to 150', which sounds like more than enough for your space. You can also get a 6 color boomerang to put up front of the unit for custom color/gel. Manual control from the unit or connect to DMX to intensity, color wheel, CTO wheel, and iris control.
The AFS-500 LED follow spot follows the traditions of Altman Lighting while introducing several new key features to this performance luminaire. This compact, lightweight 490 Watt white LED manual follow spot is packed with a powerful feature set at an affordable price.www.altmanlighting.com
Nope, it does 75’ just fine. With 11,000lm of output it’s more than bright enough at that range, even if you’re irising all the way down to a headshot only. 7° is fine for a basic full body shot.
75’-150’ is easily within the range of the AFS-500. At 150’ I would question moving up to the brighter AFS-700 taking into consideration of how bright the other fixtures are in the stage wash. If you’re battling 50,000 lumen moving head fixtures it’s safe to say the afs-500 wouldn’t be enough at that distance. It all depends on what other lights are being used in the venue.
I'm not sure of any follow spot of note that has an iris with 100© closure.. or why one would want that. I haven't used either fixture, and probably won't, but this seems like a strange criticismAbout six years ago, I saw the Canto Astro LED at LDI . Seemed very crude mechanically, with a so-so iris that didn't go all the way closed and some sharp edges on the body. Then I ran into the RVE (French company) "ChaseLED" 350 watt LED followspot which was brighter and had superb mechanics and finish. About $6500 vs $5100 for the Canto.
Brought two of the RVE. https://www.rvetec.com/gb/lighting-fixtures/101-projecteur-chaseled-822.html
I believe all models from RJ have fully-closing iris. As for why one would want it, there's nothing (well, few things) worse than a spot that won't get small enough. Except one that won't get large enough.
Or irises that stick because they've been baked into position... usually closed.
Based on messing around with them a few minutes at trade shows, I would say that the RJ LED spots, like the Lycian LED spots, have nothing in particular that makes it stand out from the rest of the product line, which is a good thing. It looks and feels like all the other products in the RJ line but it's LED.
