Explore Scientific ASTRO R-LITE red light Flashlight
The ASTRO R-LITE red light flashlight is the ideal companion at night to read star charts or make adjustments to the equipment without losing the dark adaptation of the eyes. The ASTRO R-LITE offers 3 functions: Continuous light bright / Continuous light dark / Flashing. The large diffusing lens results in a very large and evenly illuminated light cone, which can also be adjusted by a sliding mechanism. By using a power-saving LED lamp, the battery life (1 x AA-LR6) is up to 100 hours. Of course, the robust lamp housing made of aluminium is splash-proof according to IPX4 and therefore particularly well suited for outdoor applications. The side cutouts on the front of the ASTRO R-LITE provide a 360° signal function. The 50 cm long carrying strap with quick coupling and an extra belt clip included in the scope of delivery ensure that the flashlight is always quickly at hand.

Vixen Lens Heater 360 IV
The 360 IV Lens Heater is designed to prevent camera lenses and telescopes from fogging up due to dew. It is also well suited for eyepieces.The heating element is a carbon fiber heater with a high thermal efficiency. The textile heating element provides great flexibility compared to other heating materials. The power cord (USB cable) has a particularly high flexibility to be still elastic at low temperatures. A very flexible Velcro tape allows for quick and easy attachment to and removal from the lens. The tape can be easily removed from the lens without pulling tightly. The heating tape has a very low power consumption and can be operated with a 10,000 mA battery for up to 14 hours.The Vixen Lens Heater 360 IV in detailWhen moisture in the air comes into contact with an object whose temperature is lower than the ambient temperature, small drops of water form - so-called dew condensation. Astrophotography often suffers from such lens fogging and the photo turns milky. Because the temperature and humidity change during the night and the camera becomes cooler than the ambient temperature, it is important to warm the objective's or telescope's lens by using heaters to prevent it from fogging. We recommend using the Lens Heater 360 IV when you want to do astrophotography or night photography on the coast, in the mountains or in cold regions. The heating elements are made of carbon fibers with improved heating performance, introduced for the fourth generation Vixen Lens Heater 360 IV. They efficiently keep the lens warm and fog-free with minimal power consumption. The heater temperature reaches 10 degrees Celsius above the ambient temperature (at 20 °C outside temperature and no wind). However, it varies according to influences in the environment. For power supply the lens heater is equipped with a detachable coiled cable (USB Type-C), up to 50 cm long. The 360 IV lens heater consumes only 2.5 W of power (5 V - 0.5 A). With a portable USB battery of e.g. 10,000 mA, it can operate continuously for about 14 hours (at 20 °C outdoor temperature). However, the operating time varies greatly depending on the environment and temperature. The soft and non-slip surface of the heating tape allows for easy attachment to the objective, eyepiece or telescope. The heater consists of a 30 mm wide and 600 mm long heating tape and is suitable for diameters up to 100 mm.FEATURESHeating type: carbon fiber textile heatingTemperature: 10 degrees Celsius above ambient outdoor temperature (at 20° C, no wind)Power source, power consumption: USB, 5 V, 0.5 A, 2.5 WPower cable: USB A (male)Connector: USB type C connector detachable coiled cable 20 to 50 cmOperating time: approximately 14 hours with fully charged 10,000 mAh battery (at 20 °C outdoor temperature)Recommended for lenses with a width of 30 mm and an outer diameter of 45 to 100 mmDimensions: 30 x 600 mmTotal weight: 67 gSCOPE OF DELIVERYLens Heater 360 IVUSB spiral cable

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Camera Dovetail Kit for iEXOS-100 Mount
Universal mounting rail for mounting a photo camera on an EQ mount with Vixen GP mount for astrophotography. The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC camera dovetail rail is made of die-cast aluminium. The dovetail-shaped mounting rail is 45 mm wide (similar to the Vixen dovetail style) and 280 mm long. The matt black anodized surface has a laser engraved scale on one side with a fine graduation with 2 mm increments. This makes it easier to determine the center of gravity when placing the camera on the mounting head. To protect the clamping surface there is a stainless steel clamping plate on the opposite side. The dovetail plate is equipped with rubber inserts at 3 positions. This allows a secure mounting of the camera equipment and prevents unintentional slipping and twisting. The mounting rail has a screw fastening with 1/4 inch photo thread, which is suitable for almost all commercially available camera systems. The screw attachment can be used in 3 different elongated hole positions to adjust a perfect balance. In addition, an adapter from 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch photo thread is also included, so that ball heads with the larger thread version can also be used directly. The camera mounting rail weighs only 250 grams. Suitable for all EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC and BRESSER mounts and also mounts of other brands that accept the popular Vixen-GP dovetail rail. FEATURES Universal camera mounting rail Dovetail with 45 mm width Length 280mm; weight 250 grams Suitable for EQ mounts with Vixen GP dovetail Camera mounting screw with 1/4 inch photo thread Thread adapter 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch Laser engraved scale with 2 mm fine graduation Stainless steel clamping plate Rubber inserts against slipping and twisting 3 elongated holes for mounting the camera SCOPE OF DELIVERY Camera mounting rail Mounting screw 1/4 inch Thread adapter 3/8 inch
