Looks like MH to me... See the clear lamp on the front-right one?

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

The lamps looked like MV in person as they had that greenish glow to them. Maybe one of them is MH?

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

I suppose there's always a chance but the fixtures look a bit new for MV. Probe start MH lamps can turn greenish toward EOL and maintenance people can put the wrong lamp in the fixture. I love FCO MV fixtures though.

My friend, who's a master electrician, installed a 250W MV lamp in a 250W HPS wallpack at a Chinese restaurant almost ten years ago and it's still running fine. He did it because he didn't have the correct lamp on him at the time.
