    I need to wire up the below ballast to two 39W T5's. The picture on the ballast makes no sense to me at all, can somebody give an idiots guide to connecting this? :)

    Should be simple if you can read the diagram. All ballast diagrams shows you the lamp holders and wiring between them to each contact on the ballast. So it should be easy;)
    The 2 long things with circles on each end are your lamps. Small circles on each end are the holders and the rest is wiring.

    Also i see that is a 2x58w ballast & those are made for T8's. So 39w t5's wont work on it.
