You guys are making my life difficult...:D i had to hold the vacuum cleaner hose while the thing was burnin thru to evacuate the smoke, i barely had a free hand,besides, burning takes place within the apple, there is nothing interesting going on on the outside Anyway, i'll see what i can do.

PS. This time it was an apple, next time it will be an apple device.

Ya know, you would have much better luck shrinking the apple if you put a baseball in between the laser and the apple. Too much heat and all.

Your constructive proposal is much appreciated. In fact, i'll put a basketball in between the laser and the apple.

When is your ZnSe lens arriving?
I have two- one ф18, fL56mm and one ф20, FL101mm. needless to say, burning performance is spectacular, but microvulcanic eruptions of molten stuff and smoke are too much for the lens without ventilation
