Here ya go Caz :clouds2:

Red Alerts

A blinking good idea to avoid trips and bumps in the night!

A set of three flashing red LED marker lights to pick out tripod legs and other equipment in the dark. Lo-brightness LEDs flash about twice per second. With no moving parts they just snap onto a battery and begin flashing.

Now I have to admit Steve, I've never seen those before!!

:clouds2: They are for real and no, they are not rebadged laser-protection-goggles - the lens is the correct red to properly protect night vision.  

I took a pair to the Star Party to test peoples reaction ... we all had a good laugh (as you do).  

But I will confess, I fancy a pair!  The number of times they come in handy is surprising and Greg and I already have a 'silly hat' rule whenever we observe so a pair of funny goggles won't make a lot of difference :clouds2:
