Thanks, is it safe to shine it without an IR filter or goggles? (Stars, across room)
You'll probably be OK - It's more of an issue if you are burning things. Just be careful of reflections from various surfaces, windows, shiny things! If you are outside then keep an eye out for aircraft, you don't want to blind the pilot and you don't want the RCMP showing up at your door because an aircraft got lasered!Thanks, is it safe to shine it without an IR filter or goggles?

I'm not saying wear goggles when you're shining it around the room, just be careful and you'll be fine. Get goggles so that you have them if you want to try any experiments or burning, or decide you want more power at a later date!Appreciate it! I've just never seen anyone with goggles before other than in a science lab. Gonna look goofy because the beam won't come anywhere near my eye unless as you said, I shine it at a reflective surface. Also, nearby people will still be at risk because not everyone has goggles.
Do u all buy goggles for potential spectators/friends as well?
LaserGlow's Anser tops out at 4.9mW's. Do you mean the Aires series?LaserGlow's Anser is $60 which feels like a good price for 135mW. Does Anser satisfy the needs of a first laser or should I search for cheaper? (It's 5mW)
yes, damn lol I don't know how those 2 numbers got in there. 5 is what I meant. Most are saying they overcharge tho. I recently got a 303 532nm I feel fine but caution is being advised. Not sure when I'll feel the effects of IRLaserGlow's Anser tops out at 4.9mW's. Do you mean the Aires series?
I've owned the Anser actually and loved it! Very stable, bright and batteries lasted weeks. I'd recommend it
