Hi everyone, I just joined, dont know if anyone can help. I recently purchased an ARIES 175 from laserglow, (totally excellent) but it seems to have developed a slightly wider diameter beam, only got it in march, probably something Ive done, DOH! .anywho, just wondering if its a focussing issue or something, any comments gratefully appreciated. :-? Thank you

I have the same model Aries and it's a fine piece of kit. I would suggest contact laserglow a.s.a.p as this could be internal. Have you dropped it??

Hello Timelord thanks for your reply, no havent dropped it. I do carry it around with me from time to time to do optical experiments with. I will contact laserglow and see what happens. Thanks again

it could be temperature i've found in comparison to when a laser is cold as to when its hot beam diameter and divergence can change rather dramaticly.. i understand its heating up in the northern hemisphere temperature could be a factor.

is it still within spec?

Measure the beam diameter and the divergence to see if both are still in spec.
If not, return it for repair while it's still under warranty.
