Porch light 2017 11FK
« on: November 21, 2017, 07:30:22 PM »
A challenge. I like to play with night sky astrophotography. The challenge is, when we are camping on an astronomy viewing field you are not permitted to display any white light. Red only. I want to remove the lens on the porch light and install some red "tail light" repair tape to cover the white LED. Can't figure out how to remove the lens. Same with the interior ceiling lights. Any suggestions?

A fellow Astronomer.

You may have to do what I do, and just tape some red flag plastic over it during the "Star Parties".

I do the same to the interior lights as well. Use painters tape.

Thanks Gibby. I emailed the factory and (within 12 hours) got the same suggestion. They indicated that the lenses are almost impossible to remove without breaking. Bummer. An inside red filter would be much cleaner.
