    Thumbs up 12 volt rear sill brake light good for Astronomy



    I wanted a decent light outside for my hobby, when I found this lamp on the side of the road being thrown away I immediately thought red night light. How to! well I think the photo's tell the story. The colour is not accurate, it is very red and works well. I use it for my desk and always position behind the scope when I'm out at night. these lights can be purchased at an auto shop fairly cheaply and with a 12volt power supply you get a very serviceable asset to your equipment.

    Thats actually a good idea as I often have to come in the house for something (pee breaks) or to check stellarium on the desk top pc and dont use (white) night vision killing lights,, just a red head light..
