Love that lamp detail!!

It came out better than I hoped and it confirmed for me the brand of the lamp as I can't see the etch. EYE tubular lamps are very square at the end like this and they are the only manufacturer to still import them here.

I wasn't expecting to see the starting resistor in the lamp but it's there in the pic, the SLR digital camera dad gave me works bloody well.
