Sure is a nice baby blue color. Nice comparison, the DPSS stands out with its skinny beam :)

Nice build! What host is that, or is it one that you built yourself?

Nice beam shots. Alien. I wish I knew the wavelength of your 490nm as they have been shown to be anywhere from 486nm to 493nm. It will also depend on the current you drive them at as they tend to increase 1nm when driven up to 200 mA even if the temperature is held constant. Can't rep you again so soon, but you will get another as soon as I can.

Those comparison beam shots really highlight the difference in the wavelengths.
