Default Suggestions for a Star pointer

Looking for a green laser(I heard they're the best for star pointing) that's clearly visible in the night sky, want to use it to point out stars, if it has a somewhat decent visible 'beam' that would be helpful. trying to keep the price around 60-90 bucks, plausible?

I was looking at ones anywhere from 5-150mw but i'm honestly new at this stuff so forgive me if I say anything remotely ignorant.

for start pointing 30-50mw would be best because anyhigher and your eyes will adjust to the laser light and not let you view anything in the sky correctly....

also if you are going to use it indoors you need safety goggles and they are a must....

A laser like this Silver chrome green laser 50mW/good finish [OLSGL50] - $29.00 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products from a good company like o-like would be good but im not sure if it will pass customs or not but it should since o-like usually labels them as flashlight samples etc...


good luck

thanks for the suggestion!, I assume that's from china, would you happen to know anything closer to the USA? heck I'd even buy a 30-50MW green laser from a REPUTABLE member here if that's possible.
