I'm going into the Smoky Mountains to stay at our cabin and won't be back until after the new year. I will be testing it out and taking pictures during this time but I won't be near a computer until I get back. I have a Nikon D90 DSLR camera so I will take great pictures.
Update! I have not taken any pictures yet because it's in the teens at night and I don't love you all that much But I can for the time being give you an idea how bright this thing is. I always fear in the back of my mind that any cop that sees this beam at night that can trace it to the ground, will (just because he or she can) throw me up against the car, frisk me, tell me I blinded some guy in the sky and then confiscate it for they're own personal use. I had no worries with this when I owned the 5mW but that's very obvious. So until I quit being such a scaredy cat in public, it's just too bright to play with at night when there are people around. It just draws too much attention even when pointed at the ground.
In a way, its freaking awesome that I own something that intense but I feel the few turds who forever turned green beams into pilot blinding targeting devices ruined it for the rest of us. I did play with it all I wanted at the cabin because that was in the trees and that was pretty fun.
To really press my luck though, I took it to the Chattanooga Aquarium and sent the beam through 10,000,000 gallons of sea water. Man, that freaked the fish out but what a beam. I only shot it for a mili second at a time when I didn't see anybody around and not near the fishes eyes. My father-in-law wanted me to shoot it across the bow of a bullshark but I knew better than that. I kept getting a horrific image in my head of the 15 foot sharks destroying the 4000 endangered species of fish and turning the tank into a giant blood bath.
There is a time of the day though that this thing can be used without fear of capture. THE DAYTIME! Yes my friends, no beam but the dot is easily seen during a clear blue day. One day it was overcast and I could make out the beam just a bit.
So, pictures still to come as soon as it gets into the 30's a night.
