Are you candling for embryos, or blood spots and deformities?
We candle for embryos only and use a very bright (might be halogen, never really looked) hand-held candling light held against the *end* of the egg so it shines through lengthwise. The end of the light is about the size of the egg, so no light "leaks" out around the egg and brightens the room.
Never tried, but I'm not sure I'd be able to see small bloodspots in brown eggs either, but since they're fairly rare we don't bother looking for 'em.
