This is a another great Astro Dog Product – It’s the best red LED headlamp that we could find – and again, we have tested many. Typical problems with other headlamps was flimsy construction, being forced to “switch” from white to red, to flashing which is a nightmare when your trying to keep your heard fought for night vision to catch DSO’s. Other problems were the lack of proper adjustment angles once on your head to get the light where you want it.
This headlamp is the perfect companion to the more high powered torch (which we don’t recommend for using with starcharts – use this!).
It has red and white modes
You can adjust it to the angle you need
It’s not flimsy, yet it is lightweight so that it stays relatively comfortable for extended periods
Uses Standard AAA Batteries, including 1.2v rechargeables (for a slightly dimmer red light too!)
We now INCLUDE 3 x 1.5v AAA DURACELL Quality Batteries (Valued at $5.99) and insert them and test them just before shipping.
I have deliberately included the view with starcharts so you can roughly see the brightness and the spread. Image was taken at approximate distance from head to chart in lap.
Best of all – it has a SEPARATE switch for red and white light, so you don’t make any mistakes.
