Observing Best Practices and Star Party Etiquette

Use red flashlights dimmed as much as possible while still being able to see. Even red light can be objectionable if it is too bright. Buy a red LED flashlight from an astronomy source or camping or hunting supply shop. We recommend the Rigel Systems Starlight. Or modify a regular flashlight by covering the lens with red cellophane (thick layers) or red tail-light repair tape.
