The beam is not a very strong one, as it's intended for astronomy use - you don't want to lose your night vision. However, once you're dark adapted you'll find it quite useful.

And...torch forums?? That's what I love about the net, there's so much esoteric and strange stuff out there. There is an interest or a group for just about everything.
