    Glastonbury Tor with my 1.3W 520nm

    Great shots there Aardvark, all you need now is a 589 to add to your collection! I'm assuming also you've never been 'apprehended' when taking these shots in public?

    405nm Beamshot Pics (Pic Heavy)

    Nice pics there, as others have said a tricky wavelength to capture! Every time I see your shots I realise I'm missing a decent camera!

    My one 589nm Beam shot!

    Nice shot man, interesting how the mobile phone camera senses the beam closer to the orange part of the spectrum as mine does exactly the same :)

    SCI FI LASERS-need assistance (spring issue)

    Please be careful with Teflon tape. Small fragments can find themselves on the exposed diode window leading to contamination and potential damage; a good tip is to only wind the tape half way down the lens barrel and not to continuously alter the focus which will cause the tape to shred over time.

    Anyone ever use Anti-Reflex Coating Stripper?

    I think the skin test can vary considerably based on your skin type. A darker skin or sun tan will absorb more heat than that of a pastey Englishman for example :) Look forward to the pics!
