I've tried it by the near full moon, and I don't find the text readable.
I can just make out the brightest stars on the display with the nightsky
program running. A child may do better. I might do better with longer
dark adaption. I think a more experienced astronomer should have a go.
The F6 lowest brightness backlight is level 5 out of 15, reducing it to
1 out of 15 with "echo 1 > /sys/class/backlight/dcon-bl/brightness" ...
it is still too bright for night viewing.
Turning the keyboard LEDs on and the DCON backlight to full, the
B-Test-1 unit makes a passable diffuse lightsource for seeing what not
to tread on in the dark.
