Siemens Sistellar (the old type)

Finally, I found the fixture I was searching for. It's still there, at the same place. The construction of this lantern is different to the new Siteco Sistellar - this is especially true for the reflectors.
I played with a refocusing of the full resolution image (LG reduces both resolution and jpeg quality for obvious reasons) and I'm almost sure that I saw the "SIEMENS" logo inside.

Who ever designed this was not thinking of the poor fellow who would have to service this. What a mess! I've had to work on fixtures like this before...labor intensive and very time consuming. Should've used individual lumenaires...easy to service.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Yes. But keep in mind this is a 1980's fixture - from times when human work wasn't as expensive as today.
I remember these with usually 2 or 3 working lamps only so the relamping wasn't too frequent.

Which means they had little foresight...so much for German engineering!
