Apertura Astro Vision Red LED Flashlight

Keep your eyes dark-adapted during any activity at night with this mini red flashlight from Apertura!  Amateur astronomers go to a lot of trouble to keep their skies as dark as possible, from turning off porch lights to driving out of the city in search of  pristinely dark skies.  It takes about a half-hour for your eyes to truly adapt to the dark, and once that happens you will be able to see more detail and much fainter objects.  Don't ruin that dark adaptation by turning on a white flashlight to find an accessory or read a star chart!  When you use the Apertura Red Flashlight instead, your eyes will not react near as much as they do to white light, and they will stay dark-adapted.  Think of how much easier it is to see objects in the bedroom after the lights have been off for awhile.  Turning the light off let's your eyes adapt to the dark so you can see better.  In the same way, not using white light (and getting away from sources of light as much as you can) lets your eyes adapt to the dark and lets you see more stars, galaxies, nebulae...more celestial objects, and that is the name of the game when it comes to astronomy, right?

By the way, if you use a computer or your smartphone, you can buy rubylith film at an art store to make red covers for the screens.  Also use smaller pieces to cover the interior lights of your car!  It may not be perfect, but it will help quite a bit in the fight against white light!

The Apertura Astro Vision Red LED Flashlight comes with three AAA batteries and a wrist strap.  The on/off button is on the bottom of the flashlight.  This red flashlight is short enough to fit easily in most astronomy accessory cases, your glove compartment, backpack, computer bag or purse.
