I've been sitting on both of these modules for six years now. They're derelicts from an earlier time where methods were slightly more... crude. I honestly don't remember what happened to the green, but the 594's driver board fell off one day (no joke). It was way out of warranty for Laserglow, CNI refused to help and no members here had the ability to fix it at the time (and it made its rounds around the country).

EDIT- 532 on the left, 594 on the right.

Anywho, pics:

Wow, it's amazing how our technology has allowed us to make such small DPSS lasers. Again, this shows why a 594nm Rigel burns up in a minute :D

Thanks for sharing!

It's worth noting that green would belt out almost 100mW, while the 594 averaged about 2.
