    Laser dot not perfect even with brand new lens

    Good to know it is caused by the lens, I thought it would be because of it already since I did not have this problem with other lenses before. However, I accidentally damaged the old lens so I'll probably keep using this one for now, it isn't that much of a deal compared to the completely...

    Laser dot not perfect even with brand new lens

    Cool, but how does any of this help me? Ranting about the quality of my laser or my obvious lack of knowledge when it comes to lenses does not help me regarding my question. I am a software developer, not a laser/optics specialist. I never called the host a solid piece of aluminum, it is very...

    Laser dot not perfect even with brand new lens

    Laser dot not perfect even with brand new lens

    I paid about 50$ for it + 10$ for 6 batteries and a simple charger + EU adapter + another 6$ for a three layer glass lens. I could have gotten it a bit cheaper by buying it with everything included in a case but I decided to buy every part separately to increase the chance that it goes through...

I am not that much into lasers but I do know a few basics like different wavelengths and their colors, different types of lenses, fluorescence and stuff like that.

    Laser dot not perfect even with brand new lens

    Hello, I've been having issues with my 1W blue gatling style laser for a while now and I'm not sure how to fix it. After I was not able to completely clean the old lens I purchased a brand new three layer lens for it. While the dot is much better now than it was with the old lens, there are...
