Night mode

Hi!

For taking astronomical images it would be really nice to have a night mode (aka red mode).

Hi!

When your eyes are adapted to the dark (takes approx. 30-40 minutes!) and you look into non-red light then you loose this adaption - and you have to wait another 30 minutes :evil: .

Here is a scientific explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purkinje_effect

Here is an example from another app I am using: http://www.ideiki.com/astro/

Thanks for the explanation.
Will add it to my TODO list, will need some UI work.
