Any arrangement that works is good. I had first tried the blue HF puck lights but saw too many ERR's. Since I use the chrony exclusively indoors, I went with an IR light set. The fact that a double discount and free hat got it down to about $40 helped too.

I have lights that I'm guessing are similar to the HF lights you have, mine came from the bargain bins at WM. With mine I ended up getting the best results by using them on top of the diffusers, shining down through them. ETA- It's a C E ProChrono Digital.
One puck centered over each arch works great for me
Just a little project to work on a hot afternoon.I had been having a few 'errors' with this chrony, typically in the late afternoon which is when I usually shoot. Where I shoot from is under a shade tree and when the sun gets low It gets some 'dappled' sunlight which is probably the issue. I had seen another forum member had just stuck 'tap lights' on his chrony and the light went off.. if you pardon the pun.20181020_123333 by Tom Whit, on FlickrHere is everything I needed. The chrony of course, some tape light (on the black spool) left over from previous projects, some wire, a couple of alligator clips, and a 9 volt battery.20181020_124413 by Tom Whit, on FlickrI soldered some wires (stripped from cat 5 cable that I have) onto the little copper pads of the tape light. Mind the polarity 20181020_125839 by Tom Whit, on FlickrThe tape light has a self adhesive on it so I just stuck it to the underside of the shades.20181020_135748 by Tom Whit, on FlickrWired it all together minding the polarity, put some Velcro on the 9V battery and that's about it.20181020_135800 by Tom Whit, on FlickrLights up nice and steady!Does it work? No idea haven't tested it yet but it should. I will get a chance to try it out this afternoon once it's cooler and I will report back on its performance, and battery life.They draw around 75ma so by my calculations it should be around 6 hours of battery life.Thanks for looking!
