I know, I'm just trying to point out that some people may be more sensitive to the light than others. I have a 1mW red that my family uses as a cat/dog toy and my mom is bothered by the dim dot even in a brightly lit room. If what I originally said sounded like or insinuated that goggles aren't necessary then I can edit that post.

So what is the best color for star pointing. I know green isn't the best because it ruins your night visibility. Then you have to close your eyes for a few minutes to get your night visibility back.

Personally i like my 12X it's doing 560mW on 420mA. What type of budget you thinking of spending tho?

actually, im pretty sure green is the best for star pointing..... it definitely "goes farther in the sky" than any other laser I have, or at least it seems that way.

Dude, here's what you really SHOULD DO. ANd this is just a suggestion, grab you a 50mW, maybe even a 100mW green. PLay with it outside at night, point it in the sky, find a mountain. IT'll blow your friggin mind dude.

Blue is much easier on your night vision, a 500mW or even 1W of 445nm would make an awesome starpointer without messing much with your night vision.
But seriously, you could just get a 5-10mW greenie, it has a visible beam at night,
but it's dim enough not to mess with your low light adaptation either.

Wow, that is the same camera I have.


I have violet/blue 50mw. It doesn't seem to go as far as my 5mw green laser.

This one that JakeGT has looks exactly what I am looking for:

Oh god, you make me scared. I was using my <100mW Super Beast #100 006 and my eyes felt like straining after when i looked back to my laptop. I'll start going overkill with my LSG's now..
