Nice shot, the c-mount looks a lot better indeed. Thanks and +1!

A little foot note....Comparing the Mitsu P73 640nm LD to the C-Mount 650 5W from Lazeerer...

It has been demonstrated that the Mitsu. P73 LD can be configured into a Dual or Quad Multi-diode optically corrected unit...BUT...in a MUCH larger and more complex build.

I should note that the P-73 can be optically "corrected" ( with cylinderical lenses) to greatly improve the farfield beam geometry and will completely eliminate the line geometry and provide a nice tight beam ( divergence of approximately 1.2 Mrad )....but...the number of extra optical components increases and the optical alignment is quite demanding.

It is completely possible to correct a single P-73 LD....in the HH format....but a Multi-diode unit in the HH format.....while possible....would be quite......large !!!

BUT....why bother !!! ???

The P-73 can be slightly over driven to deliver 1W per LD.....SOoo... at LEAST three (3) P-73 diodes would be required to deliver the luminosity of a single C-Mount 650 5W ( LAZ-C650).

The downside of any Multi-diode design is cost,complexity and alignment stabillity. The more complex....the more alignment stabillity becomes problematic.

With the LAZ-C650....there is but a single LD....with a simple Plano Convex 50mm fl lense.....and with the beam characteristics seen....seems like a " No Brainer" to me !!!....AND...at 8 cents/mW....what a bargin !!!

Thanx again to Angelos and Jay for ...."B-Lazing" the trail !!!! And to Jordan for including the LAZ-650C in his offerings !!!

It is a really nice diode and a cool build... :cool:

Nice to have a C-Mount build/kit, and know that I can easily swap other C-Mount diodes in there at some future point. (although at this point, I don't see changing this diode!) :D

It would be hard for me to explain how much I love this C Mount Stubby. I got to put on a bit of a light show with it and my other lasers across a pond and against a bank about 50 yards away. The ranch had a bunch of people out and we all sat on the dam ooohing and awwwing. I was also lighting up hill tops a mile and more away. Got tremendous effects shining it off the water close to the bank. By Far the C Mount was the star of the show. Lots of people wanted to know all about these wondrous devices. :D

The only thing that saves me from noob guilt at being blessed with the ownership of this special jayrob creation is knowing how much I had to pay for it. :p

Glad you like the build!

C-Mound diodes are easy to install if you have the heatsink and everything ready...

But even so, your not an noob now! :beer:
