Glad to hear it. Even at 5mw, it should be brilliant in the sky, depending on the light pollution in the sky

I can't wait to try it out at the beach at night to see the kind of range I can get over the water.

Yea that should be pretty nice beamed out to the horizon.
If you really want to see something cool, you should see a 532nm beam under water. It goes to a whole new level of cool.
There's a group buy going on right now for 100mw 532nm waterproof hosts if you're interested. It ends tomorrow and the lasers are being ordered monday morning.
Here's the link

Unfortunately I don't have cash to throw around right now. Gotta pay bills and am saving up for parts to build a computer. I got this laser because, well, 6 bucks for a toy of this caliber sounded like a pretty good idea.

Completely understandable. I was just making you aware if you were interested in one.
I started out with a cheapie 532nm ebay pointer too, once upon a time. It's still listed in my signature, actually

Aout the protection glasses, do they protect against IR too, or only visible light, as the green?
