I just got my first HeNe red laser!!! yay! looks awsome!!!!

I bought this on impulse at the low price of $28 after shipping on ebay (the guy had it at buy it now)

now that I have it I've noticed it has some slight blue halo around the red dot, any idea what it is?

also, what can I do with this laser besides look at it and be happy?

looks great, the blue light is just from the electrical discharge within the laser, quite normal

you can feel all cool because you have one and I don't ;)

and do you know of a place I can buy one other than ebay?

I want to get my hands on one of these self contained units.



Not sure where I could get one though, and would want a higher powered one.

HeNe's and high output power don't mix very well though :( expect to pay a few grand for anything more than like 10mw

Too cool! Congrats! I loves my 2 HeNe's and there are a few things to do with them. Holography, Light effects, tests (not really bright though) optical alignment, and color combination experiments and tests to name a very few!
