Ok. :D

From Left to Right: 589nm (not noticeable), 405nm (bottom), 520nm, 465nm & 638nm.



From Left to Right: 465nm, 520nm, 445nm & 450nm+3x BE.



Moon was rising and too windy to continue

I nearly froze to death (I know you're laughing Arctic but it's true.... :crackup:)

Hope you enjoy guys.

:beer:
Great shots, Andrew. You can tell it was windy. Just look at how the stars were being blown around. :tinfoil:

Funny how 465nm looks a darker blue than others in the first picture :thinking:

----
EDIT

I looked wrong descriptions
405nm is darker than other blue beams, as it should be.. :D :D
Thank you AD.
Yep, I thought you may have missed the first description.
I have labelled the photo for you but you already saw it, cheers. :beer:



Andrew, just curious, how long was your exposure, I see some star movement, and was wondering how that equated to time?
Thanks Jeff, you have a keen eye, yes I was experimenting with a new technique on my camera, it's a long exposure composite.

Great shots, Andrew. You can tell it was windy. Just look at how the stars were being blown around. :tinfoil:
hahaha, thanks for the laugh buddy, I cracked up at that.
:crackup:
I like that laser stand you've got going on RB! :beer:
Cheers diachi, yep I so needed a stand like this.
I posted a thread about it, very versatile.
Still waiting a few more ball heads for the s.clamps, it will have 8 all together.
Nice sharp pics, very enjoyable. :gj:
Cheers Red.

Few shots from last night..

I came back home from work yesterday and browsed Stellarium App on my laptop. I realised that there was small time window when moon was staying below the horizont for an hour after sunset. -And there was a slight chance to see Milky-way during that time.
I grabbed my camera and gears went out.. It wasn't as dark as I hoped but I'm quite happy that I was able to see it again. :yh:

I think they came out pretty good considering how much light you had to deal with. Very nice, buddy.

Very nice Arctic. Impressive as always. Noticed you have a cap and a what looks like a window on your Laser. Was wondering what it might be? :gj:

Thanks Paul and Bob! :thanks:

If mean that green light on the body, it's a illuminated side switch. Like these ones >> (1x 26650 host is PLP520-B1)

Glad to hear that you liked those pics. :)

:oops: , there were two typo's there (I fixed them). I was talking about both "cap and what looks like a window"

I see, the lighted switch shows up quite bright. I remember this thread, very good looking lasers. Thanks for the link, loved them than and still do . Keep the pics coming. :)

Beautiful set of photos from the other night, AD, that's an amazing amount of visible stars with it still being that light out! :kewlpics:

I remember that thread also, and I agree, very nice looking lasers, love that flip lens cover. :)

Yes indeed, very beautiful images A.Dude.
Love the star fields and beams.
What I plan to do one night is to do a full 'Star Trail' photo with the lasers.
I was experimenting that night to see if it's possible with my setup and I think it is, just that it was so windy.
Keep them coming and thanks for sharing.

:)

Here's a couple more I grabbed tonight, gotta work on how bright they are. Too much light is coming through. :thinking:

Nice beamshots Bob! Did you took your camera with you to your work?! lol :gj:

Yes, I have same problem with multi wattage lasers sometimes.. Those are a bit tricky when you are shooting in very low light conditions.
It's not always easy to find the right exposure settings if beams are really really bright and ambient lightning is very low.

That's why I'm using remote tailswitch setup that I mentioned..
If you will use normal tail switch ON/OFF it can cause beam shaking on the picture.
Using remote tail switch laser stays complete still and makes your photo shooting much more easier when you can control you laser behind the camera.

Here's few examples from yesterday. These pictures have taken with 10-14sec exposure and NUBM07E was lasing only 1-3sec during that time.


HI-Res images via click..









I finally went through memory card from my old Panasonic.
Just one picture is barely good enough, rest of the pics are too blurry and unfocused. :yabbmad:
I need improve my setup for long distance pointing / imaging.
Here is original post from: PLP520-B1 + 3X BE long distance pointing >>

That's not bad for an 07 diode. I always love it when you can capture the stars in your beam shots. I owe you a rep as I can't do it now.
