Fog it up man. 473 beam!

I don't have any fog :(

And to Livinloud, I can't really since I was holding the laser with the grating in one hand and my phone in the other :D

If you really want to see it, I can try if you would like.

Not hard. Open the freezer door, match in a bottle, just after a hot shower. There's fog of all sorts everywhere. Just got to find it.

I was thinking of doing that. Go to the shower and let some hot water run and close the opening underneath the door.

Think that would work? :undecided:

Yeah shower steam is perfect! That would look awesome with the diffraction grating. Multiple beams from quality lasers. Can't beat it haha

Alright, the shower trick worked better then expected!

It looks awesome in my opinion, I had the shower on the highest setting it would go. By the way, if you are interested I can also try this with my Libra/Anser.

PS: Is it normal my Aquarius was heating up in about 10 seconds instead of the 90 sec duty cycle? I turned it off just in case adter I stopped the pictures to avoid any damage:wtf:

The pictures are below folks, enjoy(most are with the lights on since my Android phone captures 473nm better that way).

Edit: Here is a picture of all them together. While doing this I also noticed my Anser and Libra's beam both come out a little slanted but no biggie. The Aquarius beam on the other hand is straight as a stick.

I do still have a question though...is this safe to be doing around DPSS lasers? I don't want to ruin them and even though they both worked fine afterwards, I just want to make sure the "steam" dosen't destroy the crystals :(. Thank you!
