The Explore Scientific Astro R-Lite is a new product from Explore Scientific which will be especially useful to astronomers who need to read information or see equipment controls in the dark while their eyes are dark-adapted. The Explore Scientific Astro R-Lite has been custom designed by ES engineers with a special and proprietary filter inserted to allow this compact flashlight to perform at the optimum brightness and intensity for dark-adapted astronomers. Once you get in a dark location and turn it on, you will see exactly what we are talking about.

The Astro R-Lite produces the ideal brightness to protect the user’s night vision during viewing sessions, while imaging or walking around on the field.
