Nova Lasers Optics Assortment Product Review

I received a HUGE assortment of Optics from Nova Lasers !  This thread will be touching base on their Diffraction Gratings.  Diffraction Gratings have different designs etched into the Grating - allowing the results to be seen when you shine a laser through them.  The resuts can be truly spectacular, as you are about to see !  Completely insane is the way I would describe these - they are custom fitted into a small cap, which sides easily over the Optics holer from Nova Lasers.  The assortment I received was HUGE, so I will be posting lots of pictures in this thread, and some pretty cool videos as well.  This Grating is similiar to a line generator, but has pin points of light along the line. Without further ado - here is one of the gratings.

Here's a couple of videos using the same gratings, but FOG enhanced !

The second vid shows off their Beam Expander, and their Line generator - two LITTE optics that can be used by means of their lens and accessory holder. The front aperature cap unscrews, and this little tube screws right in there - I will post some pics of it tomorrow !
It has three set screws, to hold whatever optic you have in place - and they are a little bit on the tiny side - you may understand a little bit better in the "outtakes" version - the second video...no editing - okay, a LITTLE bit, but c'mon...

Okay - I am using their stock photo of the lense and accessory holder for the X-series laser !

Does the lens holder work with newwish lasers?
No - the NEw Wish are too fat. This lense holder screws into the body of the laser, after you remove the aperature cap. INGENIOUS design ! I love it - I am kepeing it on the front of the laser full time now ! And I am understnading now why there are SO MANY cutouts in the foam insert for the case ! It is so you can carry around all this neat stuff, too ! The difrraction gratings came in a rectangular "tackle box" looking item that stores them all very nicely ! I promise to get some daylight photos tomorrow of all the gear - this is an incredible accessory, folks - If you buy the laser, you had BETTER buy the lense holder, with the optics ! Liquid Sky with no moving parts !

What if the cap of the newwish laser was removed, so just the part that houses the focuser lens?

No - it is too big around :( I am POSITIVE with a little bit of modification, you could do it, though...This is such the neat little item !
