With the 10w Goodden in a similar bucket 12 sp.

I'm so fed up with tiny catches I'm changing all my lamps and investing in new batteries as some are 8 years old and took a hammering in the near zero temps in Sweden last month.
A snippet from UK moths blog: EU directives about lamps are going to impact on supplies of MV lamps so stock up if you use them.
Pic below is my only micro: Eulia ministrana. Just to cheer up Ina!
* 8w fixed vanes from Batty very easy to erect if not to carry and he says guaranteed to fire up every time, true enough so far.
