    $3,000 - $9,000 isn't exactly cheap.

    No, it isn't. But you don't have to go with Martins. There are cheaper alternatives, but not quite as good. (Yes - I wanted Martin movers and Christy projectors in my sound/light business at one time. Then I was given the choice of the lights, or eating... )

    The one thing that I would want as a feature is the ability to change the beam width from a thin "laser" to a wide fountain. The ability to use gobos would be desirable as well.

    We have been using moving heads in our display for a few years now. If you want to see the actual beam of the fixture, the smallest you can realistically look at is a 5r lamp for beams and something in the range of 1200-1500 watts for profile or spot fixtures. We use Chauvet Rogue R2 Beams for beam fixtures, Martin Mac III profiles, Vari-Lite VL2500 spots, and Martin Mac Vipers for spot fixtures(depending on the year). We have used smaller LED fixtures (Martin Mac 101, High End Systems Shapeshifter C1) with some success, although all you will get from smaller LED fixtures is eye candy effects, which only work well when used in larger arrays. If you are looking to use smaller LED moving heads to illuminate something like trees or your house, you might be better off spending your money on waterproof LED pars (personally I like the Elation sixpar 200 IP).

    @algerdes: check out the Focus Spot Three Z.

    Seeing the beam isnt gauranteed. Getting a fogmachine or haze machine will help, but then you have to worry about the wind

    the $300 is just for the lamp.

    I am thinking you must have mis-typed the wattage rating.. 230 watt heads are what Tom BetGeorge uses on his and they are fabulous for beams.. I have never seen a moving head with 1200 watts plus in a small package... Maybe Syncrolite, but aren't they out of business?
