Red Torch

A must-have tool for the avid astronomer is a red torch. While out under dark skies, your eyes become adjusted to the darkness - this is your night-time vision! If you need light, using red light doesn’t affect your night-time vision and still enables you to see what you are doing when adjusting your telescope or other tools.
