Nav Table Light?

My old Hella nav table light has a burned out bulb, and I am reluctant to waste a lot of time chasing the bulb since it is not that good anyway. It has just the right illumination for reading charts at night when you're in night-vision saving regime, but it's useless as a reading light for other times.

Can anyone recommend a decent fixture for this purpose? It should have a bright setting to use as a regular reading light, a dim setting for night vision mode, maybe a red light mode as well.

Re: Nav Table Light?

Meant for flying, but does work real well for reading charts, AA battery powered and three different levels of illumination if I remember right.
