My first attempt at a mega tree

16 strings of mini lights half white, half green, 10' tall, 16' diameter
Center pole is 10' 1 1/4" conduit pipe, outer circle is 37' of 2" plastic water pipe.
I welded 4 half chain links at the top and zip tied 4 strings of lights to each link
I had everything on hand except the lights, 16 strings at just under 2.00 each
Total cost, less than 50.00 including 4 extension cords
For 2006 I will be adding triple the lights to fill in the tree, there will be total of 48 strings,
half green half white and will add a lighted star on the top.

Starting in 2006 they will be animated using

 

Night time view

Started on my mini trees, there will be 10 in all. For 2006 there will be 300 clear lights per tree.

Here are first five

Here they are all lit up

All ten trees have been built and the controllers have arrived. I have all the songs sequenced and ready to go. Lights will be controlled by Light-O-Rama controllers. This year I will have total of 48 channels to work with. If you are interested in these types of displays be sure to check out Planet Christmas There you will find tons of information about Christmas decorating.

This is my portable electric box. Electric company put in a new transformer in 2007. I have two meters, one for the house and one for the shop. The lights will run off the shop meter so they will have not affect on my house. In 2007 my electric bill just went up about 50.00 per month to run the Christmas lights.

These are the 3 16 channel Light 0 Rama controllers I will be using this year.

I made this sign several years ago using C-9 lights and Computer disks. This year I will divide the lights up and control each one separate with LOR.

Picture of everything lit up. Small lights on the left are the manger scene characters and the square lit up on the right is the "tune to" sign. Tune your radio to 89.5 FM to hear the music synced to the lights. Show runs every night from Thanksgiving to New Years, 6-10 PM.
