    Default Global Rainbow in Nantes: 140 watts of full color

    I'm sitting on top of a roof at Le Lieu Unique in Nantes and wanted to share some pictures of what this rainbow looks like

    In terms of specs...
    174 watts of internal power (140 output).
    We drove out and the rainbow could be seen from 40 kilometers (about 25 miles) away!

    All gear run off of 2 16amp circuits. No water cooling either...


    Artist: Yvette Mattern
    Lasers: Lightwave International www.lasershows.net
    Venue: Le Lieu Unique, Nantes, France

    Just a few right now, but more pictures and info to come soon.

    I remember reading in an older thread the red was based on some type of MOPA arrangement, although it may have been OSPL.

    If you follow the path in the 360 view (away from the laser source) you come to a pretty wack fountain!

    Amazing - beautiful pictures. Thanks for posting.

    I understand that this will only be running through September 16. Any mention of the next site where this will be displayed?

    I would love to see this in person.

    Not sure as of yet... I'll post here if I get any info.

    It really is crazy to see in person. On our first drive out, I couldn't believe how far it went. I actually like the look of it from a little further away.
