Why Red-light:

It takes about 20-30 minutes for your eyes to fully dark adapt when doing photography at night. Red light does not mess with that process. Turn on the white light and you have to start dark adapting all over again.

Why Separated button is key?

Below is what Mr.JimDoty says: After leading dozens of night photography field trips, I have decided one of the most frustrating things to have happened is for someone to accidentally turn on white light and ruin the dark adaptation of the whole group. The problem is some headlamps make you cycle through all the white light settings to get to the red LED. That is a terrible design for night photography. So the most essential feature for a night photography headlamp is a separate button to turn the red LED on and off. It is even better if the red LED button is separated from the white LED button.

Great with room for improvement

I love the MSM rotator. it's small easy to use and tracks very well once you get it aligned right. The battery life is a bit on the short side especially when used in colder environments. I usually get a battery warning after about an hour in the cold.

The green laser it come with for alignment has problem when it get cold. This is a know issue with most green lasers that they begin to emit UV when they get cold. This can be dangerous since propel can't see the UV laser but it can still do some serious damage.
Keeping the laser turned on for about a minute will heat it up enough to begin emitting green light again.

Head Torch with Red LED Light

White light during Astrophotography presents all sorts of problems so I purchased this because it has a red light.
It also has a white light for normal use.

This head torch is the best on the market for Quality, Functionality and Price.
I’m really pleased with how it fits, works perfectly and recharges with ease.

Lightweight and very useful for astro

The headlamp is lightweight to carry and very useful for astrophotography. Especially the seperated red light makes it easy to operate a camera in the dark without disturbing night vision. The white light is bright enough for packing up and walking around, however for longer hikes I use a second other white only head lamp which is brighter and has a wider zoomable light cone. This one makes a bright center dot with a bit surrounding light.
The only thing I find a bit annoying is you have to press the button twice to switch the red light off as it first turns to blinking mode. I have no use for red strobe light.

Red & White lamps make it versatile

Never goes in the camera bag except on night shoots, where the red lamp doesn't ruin your night vision. The rest of the time it's on the night stand available for power outages where the white light is VERY helpful.

Works as advertised

It’s a head lamp with separate buttons for red and white lights. Works great.

Red LED Headlamp

There is nothing to dislike about this headlamp. Two levels of brightness for the white light and strobe for both red and white make it very versatile. I especially like that it’s easy to switch between red/white with the large buttons on top and can change the angle of the light by tilting the part that the strap is attached to. It’s rechargeable, so don’t have to worry about batteries, and the headband is comfortable to wear. Very reasonably priced, compared to some of my other head torches. Does the job nicely.
