    What I also like about this is that it is in Q&A format. SO insted of having to read all the info, you can really just read the questions relating to questions YOU have, and check the answer below...
    Very nice read though - like the Bible of ATS. ;)

    Shot mate. This link really opened my eyes regarding ATS, and I am basing my ATS exprience on it. This person really knows what they are talking about.

    Yes it is SantaMonica.
    There are lots of pictures of different set ups people did. And best of it all, it all can be DIY. SantoMonica do sell now a perspex box unit with nano type light fittings attached either side, complete. But for us here down in SA, it is too pricey.

    I like this idea for a CFL reflector

    wonder which one is the best, Peroni or Black Label or Castle
