The bestselling astronomers' flashlight with 2 Red LEDs. The intensity is fully adjustable with Thumbwheel Brightness Control. Exclusive brightness regulation circuitry keeps the LEDs shining bright as batteries age, unlike other LED flashlights which start bright but quickly fade.
The Mini Starlites are only 3.5" long, 2 inches shorter than the standard Size water resistant version.
NOT water resistant (sorry there's only so much we could squeeze in), but all the other great features in a smaller, lighter case.

Good for astromony. Can be adjusted through a range of brightness settings. Most red flashlights are just too bright for night-adapted eyes, but not this one. Also, the red LEDs are recessed a bit from the business end of the flashlight, so they won't be seen unless someone is in front of the unit. I usually hold the flashlight with my teeth when viewing charts, and the squared-off shape of the unit isn't too comfortable. Plus, it's a little heavy used that way, and this is the Mini! If they only made a smaller, lighter, round body, rubber-coated, single red LED dimmable flashlight, I would purchase it.
Right size and just what we needed for reading sky charts and adjusting optics in the dark. Better than we expected.
Have had the prior slightly longer version for over 10 years. Very reliable. Bought this and a waterproof version for various scope cases and camera bags. This is nice and compact; fits anywhere. This one lives in my Think Tank Speed Changer bag. Red and White option are very helpful for different applications.
