Looks awesome with MV! All you need is a blue "10" MV NEMA tag.

I'd disconnect the ignitor first, just in case you get a hot restrike. You probably wouldn't want to ruin your starting resistor in that beautiful lamp.

Very nice. I still have that 100w mercury NEMA tag and 150w HPS tag if you are ever going to want them.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

@ Sol: Hopefully it's an actual MV ballast, as 100W HPS ballasts cannot properly run a 100w MV lamp with or without the ignitor. In fact, the 100W MV lamp will not strike on a 100W HPS ballast without the ignitor, as the ballast's voltage is too low.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.
