This keyboard is suitable for astronomy applications since the red light keeps the eyes adapted in the darkness. Each key can be separately set to a specific color (see image). The keyboard can be dimmed.
Stargazers may want to:
- set all alphanumeric keys in red
- set control keys in light red
- set often used letters (e.g. N, G, C, M, _, I, m, a, g, e) in dark red
- turn off all keys usually not really needed (see image)
The keyboard can connect the personal razerzone.com internet account of the user in order to share his/her settings across other Razer devices. It supports the import / export of the settings on a hard drive. My own settings are available for download on my site.
This modern keyboard is built like a tank. It works on Mac and Windows, even on old Windows XP machines.
Some years ago, I have developed a free app (RedScreen.exe) to also protect eye adaption during your astronomy sessions. If you like, you can download it here for free.
Thanks for reading.
