Photos like that remind us why we're in this hobby.

Some serious optical p0rnography there.

Thanks for sharing Z.

The camera is the samsung galaxy S8+'s built in camera. I'm amazed by how good it is. As for specs, I'm not too sure.

Very impressive for a phone camera. Think someone else on here is using a s8 and I commented on there photos too. I've heard such good things about the new cameras on the phones. They do take such stunning photographs. Very impressive, the more the merrier. :)

I'm still using the stock acrylic lenses as I don't get the artifact with it on any of my lasers. I was afraid the multi-element lenses would cause it as they have on everything I've tried so far.

Thanks ped! Have to take advantage of opportunities like I had to take the pics.

The stock acrylic doesn't help the 502 at all, but it does cut down the 480's box by a good margin... not that it really bothers me too much

Huh. I found the acrylic lenses to eliminate the artifact on all the so called "505nm" diodes I've tested. Go figure.

So I was playing around with my diffraction grating...



And got up close to the spots to try getting a shot back at the laser



When I noticed something odd on the wall next to me...



This friggin thing is multiline. Didn't notice it until today. The second line is noticeably deeper blue but not as blue as 480nm.
