I was visiting a small museum (not a store) of movie & television vintage props & related equipment, etc. This NBC Studios fresnel light (from the 1950’s & 60’s & probably later) was, most likely. used on the Johnny Carson "Tonight" Show & a few others, from that time period. The multi-faceted & ringed fresnel lens in this light is widely used in movies & television as an accurate & adjustable light source. Much larger fresnel lenses were also used in lighthouses & could be seen for very great distances.
