1st Order lens at Pensacola's Lighthouse

Pensacola's Lighthouse Lens

This picture was taken looking into the lens. Notice that the light is supplied by a pair of bulbs. This is so that if one burns out there is still a light for ships to navigate by. This is a 1st Order lens which makes it the largest used in lighthouses.
