Why an adjustable red light?

The answer is that red is best for night vision.  And more specifically, it needs to be quite dim.  This is a difficult point for some to grasp, even red light – if it is too bright, can interfere with night vision.  You see people at star parties with blazing bright flashlights and light boxes for reading charts, thinking that since they’re red it’s okay.  But if the red light you’re using shows any more colorfully than funny brown-grey, then it’s too bright.  If all you need to do is pick up an eyepiece, check on some equipment, walk around,  or glance at a control – really any task that doesn’t require high visual acuity – then adjustable brightness red light is best for preserving night vision.
