I was just concerned about the availability ina couple o' years - no panic intended.

I went ahead and purchased 2X Odyssea T5ho

2 24W fixtures, 96W total. 2 ballasts, 2 independent fixtures.

I have to say what I bought is overkill, but I want to play around with some screening effects;

I'm setting them up side by side, but off set, spanning 30"...
- 1 layer screen on the 2 outer bulbs, leaving last 4" bare at the ends.
- a 2-layer area right where the fixtures overlap in the middle.
