Thanks everyone! A few years ago I did the same type of comparison between a DL Spartan 589nm 50mw and a CNI PGL 593.5nm 30mw that came out nice that is now lost on this forum due to Photobucket. Don't be surprised one day if you see the same type of comparison in the Yellow sub forum
My first "real" laser was a Dragon Laser Aurora 445nm 200 mw RIP. I know CNI had made a hand held PGL 561nm 25mw (Sta has one) and a bunch of us on LPF almost had a 5mw 561 CNI pen in a group buy that got held in in customs a few years ago. A 680nm and 495nm would be really nice to add. Who has one they want to sell?
Oh yeah, Bruce, I remember that 561nm GB, it was Styropyro who almost got us our 561's, IIRC they got held up in Anchorage by customs, and then sent back to CNI. :cryyy:
That was as close as I've ever got to a 561nm, and it looks like it'll be quite a while longer.
But we did get our money back. There was a brief time back then when I did not think we would get our money back (due to no fault of Styro’s), but we did, I think it was over 300 dollars for a 3-5mw
I wish I had an extra 495nm laser to sell you, Bruce. About the only person I know that might have one is Lifetime17. He had one last time I looked a couple days ago. It is an unusual wavelegth. Mine came in at 493nm and looks right on the edge of blue and green. You would really be surprised by it, I'll bet.
BTW, was able to rep you for those awesome photos. :yh:
