Default Cockpit lighting keeping it simple...

You might look into a finger-mounted light. My instruments are mostly lighted and I have a mounted light on the starboard area of the cockpit that Vans sells (see picture below) but have found a finger-mounted light to be VERY handy! There are several sources including nitevis.com, flightlite.com (available through My Pilots Store), cejayengeneering.com to name a few. I really like mine in that it points ANYWHERE my finger points. Simple but effective. Red LED light. I keep it strapped to a crossmember under the panel when not in use. Photos:
