LED Illumination

LEDs offer a cost effective alternative to fibre optic illumination. While relatively inexpensive, LED right lights are slightly less diffuse, and have a high colour temperature. Some models have the ability to turn individual segments on and off, and all offer the ability to easily adjust brightness.
