An excellent value option headlamp with a very bright power output.
Black Diamond says:
With a sleek, modern housing and incredibly bright 150 lumens, the Astro is an affordable light that's burly enough for any mountain pursuit and compact enough for backpack or emergency use.
The Black Diamond Astro Head Torch is ideal for campers, hikers and backpackers on a budget. One Triple Power LED brightens dark campsites out to 35 metres, and three settings give you the ideal amount of light whether you're in the tent, out and about, or for emergency use.
The Astro Headlamp has basically replaced Black Diamond's Gizmo Headlamp but with a few improvements. It's brighter with an extra 60 lumens and even has a slightly longer battery life. All good improvements without adding any extra weight or increasing the price.
