Red Dwarf Lights - Buy 2 or more, get $5 off EACH
      #5829884 - 04/29/13 10:42 AM

We knew that the Red Dwarf LED lights were really cool and that astronomers who had the chance to see (and hold) them in person would be hooked. They were an even bigger hit than we expected at the NEAF expo last weekend, but what was really surprising, was how many people bought two or more at a time!

So we've decided to offer a quantity discount on website orders for those astronomers who just can't get enough of the Red Dwarf.

Now when you buy two or more Red Dwarfs (on the same order), you will get $5 off EACH light. So the price for one Red Dwarf is $19.98 (which includes shipping), but if you order two Red Dwarf lights, you'll get $5 off each, for a total of $29.96. Or get three for $44.94, etc. (maximum discounted quantity is 10). All you have to do to get the discount, is to add the quantity you want to your shopping cart. The discount will be deducted from the order and shown on the shopping cart page.

Another couple of photos showing the Red Dwarf clipped to an Apertura Dob base to illuminate the setting circle:

Is there a way to control how bright the light is on these units?

Hey John, thanks for your question! The button/switch does have two brightness settings, but the difference in brightness between the two settings is so minor that I don't really advertise it as a "feature". Other than that, there is no "variable" brightness mechanism.

How long the batteries last?

We've gotten over 48 continuous hours of run-time on one set of batteries.

I ordered two of these lights on Friday and they arrived on Monday. The are very well built and are perfect size to mount on the 6" x 9" clipboard that I use at the telescope. The flexible neck works perfectly.

I taped a double layer of wax paper over the LED which helps to dim the light just a bit and to evenly diffuse the light.

Recommended!
