May I suggest one of those quartz-halogen bulbs they
make for high-end flashlights? They give a lot more
light than you need but are mechanically much better
than those flimsy, wobbly night light things. You
can run it off a stable DC power supply.

I presume the box is cylindrical and can go on with
any orientation? I suggest you mark it to allow reproducible
positions and take a few flats at different angles as
well as a series at fixed orientation.
