Dear All, 

 

I will be shooting in an Astronomic facility located at 16,000 ft above sea level.

 

The idea is to bring a couple of Joker 800 watts. 

 

Does anyone know if there is any risk to shoot in a low oxygen environment that needs to be taken into consideration for safety and if the lights will ignite and work ?

 

Thank you very much for your advice.

 

Regards,

never heard of such a thing, you could always email k5600 and ask if know one here knows. I have used 1.2k's at 10-12,000ft many years ago and didn't have any issues.
