Default New guy(sort of) wanting to buy/trade lasers!

I've been a long time lurker around these parts and have been more than enthused about lasers. So I decided to join the community!
As a college student, I don't have the time nor inclination to build my own. So to get myself back into the hobby I would like to buy/trade for a pre-made custom. Then I'd be wanting to make my own after seeing some fine work of the people of this forum.
I'm looking for a green laser with the capability to light a match from a "reasonable" distance. Not looking for a labby, just a handheld. Doesn't have be in the best host. Something that works and dissipates heat. Keeping the price range within the 100mW-200mW area.

Also looking for my first blue laser. I've also been fascinated by blu-ray technology. I've really been wanting one to play with. Doesn't have to burn, just able to project a brilliant(and very bright) beam across the night sky. Keeping it 50mW-100mW.
I have to offer:
Cash(very limited, I'm a college student!)
32gb iPod Touch Second Generation
iNova X03 5.8watt flashlight (bought on impulse)
iNova X1 2.0watt flashlight (also bought on impulse)
iPod Shuffle (1gb) Blue with the dock.
500gb Desktop external Harddrive
250gb Western Digital Passport USB-powered harddrive
Sony Handycam HC26 Camcorder
Creative Notebook X-Fi Soundblaster PCMIA card
Bose On-Ear headphones
World of Warcraft Account(New CD-Keys, and an old account)
More electronics, please inquire if interested in something

I have ebay feedback, and will gladly provide my ebay username.
Also PayPal verified.

Thanks

You will get lasers cheaper from China than a member here. (unless it's custom-built blu-ray)
Focusable, burning Green:

Link:
Rayfoss

Blue (473nm) is not Bluray (405nm)

Blue Laser:

Link:
Spartan Series 50mW Blue Handheld Laser :: Blue Handheld Laser ----- 473nm Laser ----- Spartan Series Lasers :: Handheld Lasers :: Dragon Lasers
Bluray Laser:
Link to a cheap one:
100mW Blu-ray 405nm laser torch /adjustable£*>405nm blue-violet laser£*>Laser&lighting products£*>www.0-like.com
Personally, I would get a bluray from a member here.

-Sounds like you should sell your stuff around campus (or craigslist, e-bay, etc...) and save up enough for an inexpensive Green or Red Burner.
I would get a $20 50mW green for star pointing.
Link: http://www.ledshoppe.com/Product/ledp/LP1076.htm
and a $50 200mW red for burning.

If you want 473nm Blue, like the Spartan, but not as costly, I'd contact Glenn (scopeguy20) about getting an Aquarius from his next CNI GB, it's a nice laser, and is $315 shipped, if I remember right. They're 5mW but sometimes you get overspec ones. Keep in mind that it is pulsed, so it wont show a straight line when you move it back and forth, but a line of dots, like this: http://www.laserglow.com/pages/produ.../main4zoom.jpg

Edit: 100th Post, yay I guess.

Welcome!

Just so you know, a blu-ray laser (405nm) is a lot harder for you eyes to see because of the wavelength. To have a cleary visible beam in the night sky, you would probably want 250mW+ or so of blu-ray. Everyones eyes are different, but the 110mW I had was barley visible.

Your eyes will see green laser very well. If your okay with the pen style I'd recommend Optotronics for quality and amazing beam divergence. If you want the led flashlight style you can buy a jay-rob kit and an o-like module, which would be easy to build yourself.

Hope that helps,

-Greg

If you want a "brilliant beam in the night sky" stick with a green for now.

Thanks for all the advice and pointers. I really appreciate it. However, I would very much would like to own a blue laser. If anyone out there is interested in my stuff, I will gladly trade for a laser, or your services to make me a new one :]

Thanks

Yobresal has a nice Optotronics RPL for $525, he might trade it for something you have, it's worth a shot. 473nm RPL

Be prepared to shell out hundreds of dollars for a true blue laser, us hobbyists cannot currently make a real blue laser so you are going to have to pay big bucks even for a weak blue pointer. If you can settle for violet there are a lot of options on this forum.

Ah, I guess I meant a violet laser then. I've seen lots of people making lasers out of the blu-ray diodes.
