Someone had a post describing how he made his own light...which I kinda copied.
All you need is a 3/4 x 3/4 x 1/2 in PVC "T" a small flashlight, a roll of felt with adhesive backing (avail at any hardware store) and some tape. I got the flashlight from a dollar store and painted the lens with red nail polish (a couple of coats to taste).
The "T" with the felt around it fits perfectly in the hole on my CGEM, which is probably the same dimension as your mount.
