    Does anyone have a CAD layout for Nighthawks, the painting, by chance? I know it's used a lot to teach lighting design, but I can't seem to find a copy floating around anywhere.

    Am I missing something? One 6x9 750W radial on the AP? A plot is needed for that? In AutoCAD, no less?

    I'm thinking it's just a spare light that someone just forgot to delete.

    That light was just not removed, hell in the VW it is just a 2D symbol not an instrument. I don't think you can light Nighthawks with just one light. I would have had to repeat that course for sure if I would have pulled that stunt.

    I can't find my completed version, looking at my paperwork I used about 25 fixtures. It was a bit under hung and I missed a few shadows.
