The Astra 6X Bi-Color LED Light Panel from LitePanels offers significantly brightness due to the use of tightly-binned LEDs and fine-tuned TIR (Total Internal Reflection) optics, resulting in a longer throw over a wider field. It offers flicker-free 0-100% dimming with no visible color shift, and has a high CRI of 95 for accurate color rendering

The Astra's functions may be adjusted locally using the intuitive built-in controls, or operated remotely with one of the optional DMX512 Modules, available in XLR 5-Pin, RJ-45, or Wireless formats. Each module provides Master/Replica configuration for the control of single lights, or multiple light fixtures in a network or daisy chain. In addition, the Astra Bluetooth module provides the same kind of control of single or multiple lights from a portable device, using the free LitePanels SmartLite app download. The accessory modules slide into place on the rear of the Astra panel simply and quickly, with no wiring or complex installation required.

The Astra 6X Bi-Color comes with both US and EU power cables, plus a universal (100-240 VAC) adapter. It also operates on 13-24 VDC batteries by using V-Mount or Gold Mount battery plates, available separately. The unique curved yoke design features a TVMP connector for hanging or stand mounting the panel almost anywhere, and two additional 1/4"-20 female taps offer alternate mounting points.

    I've worked with these and it seems like every soft box I've ever used with it doesn't actually like to stay mounted to the light - which is the best soft box?
    Asked by: Tim
    A softbox that fits the Astra 6X Bi-Color LED Panel best is the Litepanels DoPchoice Snapbag Softbox for Astra 1x1, BH # LINBAG1X1. https://bhpho.to/2RwGJdS

    Would the IndiPRO Tools Micro-Series 26V 260Wh Lithium-Ion Batteries work for this light?
    Asked by: Eric
    No, the IndiPRO Tools Micro-Series 26V 260Wh Lithium-Ion Batteries will not work with the Litepanels Astra 6X Bi-Color LED Light Panel. This light requires batteries that range from 13 to 24 VDC.

    I own 4 of these and have a shoot coming up where the only power source will be my car. How can I power the Astra from the 12V cigarette lighter?
    Asked by: David
    This light is approximately 100w. You will need to check your cars 12v port power rating. Most likely you will need a inverter connected directly to your cars battery. Make sure to check your cars batteries watt hour rating. You will want to make sure not to push it so low as to get stranded. Using a inverter that is at least double the power that you need will give you the best efficiency. For 4x Astras you would want to look at a 1k range inverter.

    question

    How many lumens is each light?
    Asked by: Adam
    Around 7000-8500 lumens depending on the luminous efficacy of the light, which Litepanels does not publish unfortunately. They give over 100 Footcandles at 10' which is quite bright.

    Are these considered spots, or floods? or do they configure as both?
    Asked by: Robert
    The beam angle is 46 degrees. It is in between a spot and a flood. You can get softboxes to soften and increase the spread of the light.
