There is actually an Aztec up on eBay right now.  They are asking 159.99 + shipping.  I would also be willing to trade the one I have without the box if your interested?  Below is the eBay link.

Oh I thought you got it because it looked like you uploaded pictures of the same lamp that was on ebay. I thought since those pictures were so dark no one else would notice it was an Aztec. I was a little jealous.

I only hesitated on buying the Telstar because I think I would rather buy a new one and import it. Interesting that it uses a 30W reflector. My Astrobaby gets too hot with that bulb and I have had to use a 25W reflector instead. It has less empty space in the base than a Telstar would so maybe that is why.

Yes it actually is, but I didn't snag the Aztec.  I already have one so I passed on it.  It was up for $150 I believe?  The base and cap in this picture are from an older rewired UK model that I already had at my desk. I just swapped out the bottles. 

The Telstar is wired for USA.  This is actually my 2nd Telstar that's wired for USA.  The other is a red/clear that I scored for only $15.  I've tried to find out more info on them, but came up empty handed.  Below are a couple pictures of the bulb.

Is this the one that was listed on ebay for cheap? You beat me to it by literally seconds. You also got the Aztec I wanted! Out of curiosity was this one wired for the USA or UK? For a very short time Mathmos sold these in the USA and I'm curious what bulb that it came with if it was one of these.
