Tungsten, otherwise set it manually... since your camera is capable, plus not all halogen produces 'controlled' output especially when a dimmer is used...

Default Custom balance

In case your camera offer this mode ( as D7/7i ) it's even more acurate .
( meaning you shoot a white sample under the light to allow the cam to calibrate itself )

( ... Am I rite ??)
