Celestron Night Vision Red LED Flashlight

B&H # CEFLNV Mfr # 93588
You Pay: $10.95

Celestron's premium Night Vision flashlight model for astronomy, this uses two red LEDs to preserve night vision better than red filters or other devices. Brightness is adjustable.  Its combined rotary variable brightness control/on-off switch allows you to adjust the brightness over a wide range.

At the maximum brightness setting, the emitted light is bright enough to locate dropped items or disassemble your telescope after observing.  The medium brightness levels will properly illuminate a star chart without affecting your pupil's darkness-adapted dialation.  At the lowest brightness setting, there's just enough light to determine a filter designation or an eyepiece's focal length.

The Night Vision Flashlight is powered by a single 9-volt battery(supplied) that lasts for several hours.  The supplied 20" (51 cm) cord allows you to hang the light around your neck when not in use.

Note! Not for darkroom use.

    Basically, it is a circuit board, battery and two LED's in a plastic case. By the time I could build something like this, It would have cost twice as much and not been as neat looking. Oh, and a nice LONG lanyard. Sure it might be somewhat "fragile"
    but I have looked long and hard for an ADJUSTABLE LED flashlight in red. This is the best deal going, as many LED flashlights are too bright, even with a red filter.

    This flashlight has tunable brightness, a nice feature. Dropped it from 2ft onto crusty snow and the headpiece came off. Thin glass in the top shattered. Still usable but obviously very cheaply made. Was free with telescope purchase so can't complain.

      I use this flashlight at the telescope to illuminate my notebook as I take notes and make sketches for my Observation Log. I can set it on the page and it won't roll away. The variable brightness means I can illuminate to just the level needed.

        This came free with my telescope, so it was a nice bonus. I've only used it a couple times, but it does the job nicely. The brightness adjustment seems to be very touchy, but that doesn't bother me at all.

              For a cheap flashlight it does very well. You can regulate light intensity so it's very helpful. Would recommend.

                Celestron and B&H- great combo. Quick ship, and item appears to be of good quality. With the cold weather I have not field tested it yet but looks ike it will be a nice help to keep outside ambient light at a minimum while telescoping.

                  Great for night time use. Adjustable brightness is a great feature. Goes from a dim light to very bright, and the red color does not affect your night vision.

                                This flashlight does what it's advertised to do, but it does not appear especially rugged. I'm going to keep it in the box for some extra protection. Replacing the battery (9V) is also a bit funky.
                                I would prefer an ordinary-looking (round profile) LED flashlight taking AA batteries.

                                      The red light illuminates the stairs without ruining "night" vision in a dark theater - however the unit feels a bit cheap and slightly concerned that you have to remove the works from the housing to change/install the battery. Have only used twice so far and hope they hold up.

                                      It was working intermittently when I first got it. Had to use a plier to tighten the grip on the battery to have it come on every times.
