Light Fixtures

I have a 2009 Melbourne 31 , There are 3 residential style round ceiling fixtures.
Anybody know how to replace the bulbs in these ? I have tried to "unscrew" the glass but it wont budge , dont want to force it .
Suggestions?
Thanks , Ed

This is not the actual fixture but that is what is in the Melbourne.

The nipple does not turn or pull out so that the glass can drop?

The nipple is flush , no way to turn it . I have tried to turn the glass but the whole fixture wants to turn.

Perhaps the whole fixture is mounted on a screw nipple extending through the ceiling along with the supply wires.
There's also the chance that the bulbs are LED and not replaceable. A strong flashlight projected through the glass may reveal more.

Here is a link to a video which will show you how it comes apart, skip forward to the 9:00 minute mark for it.

Push up on the glass lens and unscrew the "nipple". If it doesn't turn use Channellocks and muscle.
