Orion Red Beam II LED Torch

This torch is very similar to the Celestron Night Vision Flashlight – only the labelling displays a significant difference. However, the light cast by the Orion was the more even of the two.


Neither torch appears to be especially rugged and we wouldn’t want to drop one onto a hard surface  – especially on a cold night when the plastic is cold and brittle.
