ITEM #2529 Starbook Screen Brightness Reduction Film

For use with Sphinx Starbook and SkyPod Starbook-S (trimming required on S version), allows user to decrease amount of light emitted from LCD screen.  While new versions of both Starbooks have increased range of brightness and  contrast dimming, we at Vixen realize that for those Ultra-Dark observing sites even the smallest amount of white light is too much.  These dark sheets can be used one or two at a time to give the user the most flexibility and dark adaptation possible for maximum seeing.
