I see that the wire running very close to the arctube.

I"m don't speak english well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other lighting.

I'm willing to bet that if sailormoon_01_uk rotated the lamp 90 degrees you'd see that the wire hugs the outside envelope.

Interested mainly in discharge lighting (mercury, sodium, neon) and also old and unusual incandescents.

Yep it's the angle pf the photo, the expansion wire is more nearer the outer bulb than the arc tube.

this lamp is a Probe Start Lamp, it has a starting electrode and resistor in the neck near the cap.

On closer inspection, it's interesting that there is no zirconium oxide coating at either end of the arc tube. I guess it's loaded heavily enough in operation that there is no chance of the halide salts condensing at the ends!

This lamp's arctube size/volume is identical to that of the 1000w lamp, the higher pressure and temperature arc of this lamp requires no end paint to get full vaporization of the salts. Somebody told me once that these 1500w lamps use a higher quality quartz which can withstand the higher arc loading, not sure if thats true or not considering the life of these is considerably less than the 1000w lamps.

I picked up one of these yesrerday and, indeed no zirconium dioxide paint, at first glance I thought it was a mercury lamp but then I saw the salts inside. The arc tube is quite long and thin and the electrodes quite small suggesting the arc voltage drop is quite high and the arc current small when compared to European designed H.I.D. of similar ratings. I see Colin has placed the arc current, 6.2A and arc drop of 265v above.....so, yes, that fits with its arc tube dimensions.

Does anybody know the chemistry, is it Scandium, Sodium Iodide like most other American Metal Halides? Its stated C.R.I. is surprisingly low, only 65.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

The chemistry should be sodium and scandium, as this is a probe-start MH lamp, and is a general lighting probe-start MH lamp, and almost all American probe-start MH lamps, have this chemistry. The American MH lamps for stadium lighting, are nothing more than scaled up general purpose lighting probe-start Na-Sc lamps of 1500W and 1650W. And indeed this name for these lamps is misleading. In Europe, stadium lamps are special short-arc and/or long-arc MH lamps of 1000-2000W, which operates from a series choke on a 480V 3PH supply. Some halides chemistries aren't stable with the CWA gear that these lamps operates (In-Tl-Na for example).
I don't know why there are no heat reflective coatings in this lamp though.
