I am looking to purchase a laser pointer with the most colors possible. I have been able to find two-color laser pens (red/green and blue/violet) but I was wondering if there were any with three or more in a single unit, and what the most powerful multi-color units are. I have searched Google and eBay and now I thought I'd ask the pros.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the forums Pkok3!

As a general rule of thumb, the deciding factor on the kind of multi-colored laser you can get will depend on the money you have to spend. Green/Red combo lasers are the most common, while other color combinations are rarer, therefore more costly(i.e Blue/Green, Blue/Red, Violet/Red etc...)

Hi Pkok3 :wave:

Welcome to the forum.
Where are you from as that can determine if certain things can be sent to you or not.
Are you looking for this as a lab style laser or a hand held laser? I have seen a 9 diode laser set up in a pelican case before and it was a nice build!
There are members here that I believe have or can build a 3 diode hand held laser.
I will step aside and let them help you out as they are the pros in that facet of lasers.
Please poke around and see all the great stuff in the world of lasers. Be sure to use the white search bar at the bottom of the page as there is a wealth of information to see here. Remember to get proper safety laser goggles for the wavelength(s) of your laser if it is over 5mW. Enjoy, have fun and most importantly be safe.
BTW, Please be sure to click on this link for a chance(s) to win a laser of your choice!! :)

Thanks for the kind welcome everybody!

To be more specific, I'm looking for a laser that I can use outdoors for star pointing. I thought it would be cool to have multiple colors in a single handheld pointer. As I mentioned, I came across a couple red/green options but was wondering if anybody knew of a commercially available product with more. I'd love a yellow/green/violet, but don't even know if that's possible.

It's sorta possible. The laser would just be massive haha. Maybe contact a machinist here to make a laser head where you can have a red, green, and violet module/diode set up so they can be dichro'd together.
Edit: here's a supreme ultra-versio of what I'm talking about with adjustable brightness:

Rayfoss has a 3 color but I have not bought one so I can't tell you anything more about it, they do seen to have 2 sizes a 500 and a 800.

You should check their reputation in the sellers thread.
Now you could get a host from Ehgemus and a RGB pack from DTR and make your own.
Are you at least 18 and do you have safety glasses, of course safety glasses for RGB would mean you couldn't see anything so you could only use it for NON up close.
