First we have some comparisons between 589 and 594. An OBVIOUS difference.

The hard part here was using the shutter to block the 589, that's obviously not the normal output ;)







Fun 520 beamshot!


Here I've got one of those laser etched glass blocks. I thought of something interesting, and it worked ;)




Mirror fun ;)
589


532


520



Fun with diffraction!

I can't see the difference. Maybe it's something I have to see in person? :p I only have a 593.5nm laser

Nice shots Bloom! Thanks for sharing :beer:

I love those golden lasers and the reindeer projection was cool.

Look at a central point between the two dots.

Who knows, maybe my eyes are sensitive to this part of the spectrum. I see the different when they're side by side only. That applies to everything from 589 to 685. That being said, I can't see the difference well between 520 and 532 even side by side, unless I'm looking at the dot itself, with the lights on.

Yeah looking in between the two makes the difference a bit more clear... I also only have a 593.5nm laser, I'm curious as to what the 589nm looks like in person, along with a 515nm, and a 488nm, and... :p

Excellent pics! The 520 shows up nicely too.

The difference is hard to capture in pictures but is very evident in person.

Sorry for pimping my own thread but....

The colors show up pretty well but like bloom's with yellows you have to look towards the hosts to see the real colors.


No 520nm yet though. Probably my next build in the fall. Need to get my Ophir and ARG meter going first.

Glad you liked it :) My phone pics up the 520 with lights on, and when they're off, all greens from 520-543 look the same. Even the 514 line on my tunable is barely different. I guess I'll have to eventually get a DSLR or something.

I know the feeling on next build talk... Wavelength hunting begins to die down after you've conquered most...only thing left really is 561nm and 607nm.

I'm starting to understand why some vets barely pop in and out. I'm just glad I love to build, as I just build to build and keep my hands busy, and sell off what I make. Main reason I take any opportunity to take any custom order someone mentions. Plus I save up whatever's gained from it to slowly save for a new wavelength.

It's fun still, that's all that matters :)

I haven't been lucky enough to experience any golden yellow goodness as yet. But, to my eyes, there is a clear difference between my cool-running 115mW 520nm and my 100mW 532nm. Sure, it's not much to most people, but with my experience in color theory and as a photographer, it's clear to me.

Great beamshots, BP! +1 if the system lets me.
