Here you go bro. Finally charged up my camera batts to take some pics of the simple DIY moonlighting.



The first picture shows the adaptor that you will need to connect to the cold cathode voltage inverter. It is connected to a timer as you can see here.



I remove the head at the end of the adaptor wire and connect to the voltage inverter via this plastic connector to ensure that a clean connection is there. The connection of the wires must be correct or the cold cathode tubes won't light up. You can just do some trial and error, because in my case I found that it does not cause any short circuit or what when doing so. However, do practise some caution and always be alert.

This is the voltage inverter where two cold cathode tubes can be connected to it. Cold cathode tubes and inverters can be bought at Sim Lim Square. If I remember correctly, I bought them for less than $30.



I stick the 2 tubes that I have got inside the panel of my lighting. These tubes won't look bright when the surrounding is bright. And when it is dark, it will give a dim blue glow as shown in my first few post in this thread. That's why it is not like fluorescent tubes or what.

Hope you guys enjoy it!
