I'm currently doing a show in a theatre that has two Lycian Model 1207 Midget 2K Follow Spots (now discontinued). They seem to work alright, except I for one problem. I cannot figure out how to access the boomerang. The TD at the theatre has no idea, as he's pretty sure they've never needed to change out gels - as of right now, the primaries are in there plus a yellow and a purple I believe. There are two hand screws on the outside of the boomerang housing which would appear to be the way, but after removing them and forcing it I still can't get it open. Anyone have any ideas? It could even be that they just need a lot of force since they haven't been touched in many years, but I don't want to force it until I know for sure. Another issue with them is that they appear to be way too wide for stage use. With the iris all the way closed and the edge as sharp as it can go, the beam covers about from a person's knees to above their head. When you try to make it a softer edge the beam just gets very large. I'm not exactly sure of the throw, but it's at the back of a ~500 seat house and only about 15 feet above stage level. Would a different lamp help get a smaller beam, or is there another way? The Lycian website says that the 1207 can hold gobos. Would throwing a donut-like thing in there work, or would that not really help? The 1207 is designed such that only one color frame can be in the beam at a time, making it impossible to have a frost as one frame and then overlay other colors onto the frost. Is there a way to disable this so that you can have as many frames in as you want? Somewhat related, there is also a frame that comes with silk diffusion in the boomerang which can be operated independently of the others. Is this a permanent lens type of thing, or is it just a sheet of diffusion that can be replaced with something like R114? Anyone got anything? The 1206 Midget is very similar to the 1207, so if you have one of those that might help too. Thanks.
