Sorry to see that the mode is not TEM 00. I was disappointed to see that it wasn't a perfect dot when I got it. I can assure you though, that the mode was REALLY worse when I had it. It was never a sold dot. They swift modes really often and shipping might have caused it to change once more. The only dpss i have ever owned that is TEM00 is from laserglow, a unit that was used in the making of movie Tron Legacy, and that might as well swift modes sometime.
DW about it, messing with the optics is a tricky task which I haven't tried myself.
The TEM could me really worse. IMO you are lucky. :)

Its OK Silvershot, I'm not disappointed it's still an awesome beam!

It may have shifted a bit in shipping, who knows. I might give the optics a good clean and see what it looks like then

Its my first DPSS other than a couple of 30nW green pointers. It definitely has some power, if i put a lens in front of the head and focus it to a point it can burn dark objects. My daughter thinks its beautiful too!.

Since I likely won't be able to take any new pics I went through my archive and found a bunch of pics featuring my various blues. Most of these I've posted elsewhere here.

An overexposed shot of my 1W 445 (that recently died :() with Jupiter to the right.



2010-10-28_08-10-43pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

The longest 5 second exposure I've ever taken. I knew that the lens flare couldn't hurt the sensor but it still made me cringe with a less than 3 month old camera.

87mw PHR-803T 405nm in a hotlights host. Even being relatively low powered it's still one of my favorite lasers. It has a really deep violet that is a royal PITA to photograph properly.

473 labby


2011-03-06_09-41-39pm - Version 2 by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

473nm labby with a few other lasers around it.


Argon time!



2011-07-25_10-02-12pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

The main beam dominated by the 488 line.



2011-07-25_09-58-14pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

The lines it produces at idle. (4A) The blues are more pronounced since the green lines have a low gain at lower powers.



2011-07-25_10-03-57pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

Full power. (10A)


Some fun shots using one or more of the above lasers:

ML Argon (left) and 473nm labby (right)


2011-07-29_10-27-03pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr


2011-07-29_10-26-30pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

Crap. Crossed the beams!


2011-07-29_10-35-22pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr


2011-07-29_10-25-42pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr


2011-08-06_10-10-46pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

The lines produced around 4-5A. The main beam is to the left of the faint violet line.

My makeshift rig for projecting though a piece of lumia glass. ML Argon @ 8A.


2011-08-07_09-39-10pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr


2011-08-07_09-50-16pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr



2011-08-11_09-41-29pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

ML Argon and 473 through another piece of lumia glass.


2011-08-11_09-50-57pm by ltkernelpanic, on Flickr

ML Argon, 473 labby, and (I think) PHR-803T 405. (if not it was my 6x 210)



And finally ML Argon, 710mw 445, 473 labby

All the pics I posted were taken with my Nikon D90 DSLR. Honestly you don't need to drop a pile of cash on a DSLR to get good results. A tripod to keep it steady and using the self timer to allow any shake from pressing the shutter button help a lot. I got a pocketable Sony WX9 P&S for Christmas last year for times when I don't want to lug the D90 around and it takes shots that frequently rival my DLSRs. I'll have to try and post some samples from it sometime soon.

Got them from one guy, just one guy... selling them as they are (just 3 of them, RGB)

Let's just say i got the 473nm for $480
The others are even cheaper! =)
