FAR Laboratories introduces the Look Here Device ($25.95) to aid first-timers with finding a telescope’s eyepiece in the dark. The LHD consists of a red LED encased in a translucent plastic hose that wraps around your eyepiece, held tight with a bungee cord. Press the button on the attached hand paddle to turn on the light, and the device shows your guests where to look to see the wonders of the heavens. It’s a great tool for public star parties. Available in two sizes for small and large eyepieces, the LHD comes with two AA batteries.
