Nice pictures!
Is it just me or is there a slim green beam to the left of the main green beam? :-?

Oh, I see it too...

I would say camera shake, but it's too consistent over the two pictures...

IT'S A BEAM GHOST!!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Mode hopping?
It's probably just a reflection off of the aperture. It is too dim to be another TEM mode. It's only limited to the one beam, so it's not from the camera.

Nice pics and vids.

Peace,
dave

Re: red, green, & Blu-ray beamshots

Interesting that when compared to the green and blu-ray the "red" looks very orange....more so than even a HeNe! Had to re-read the post title to be sure that wasn't a 593nm... Wouldn't be too surprising the camera rendered it that way if it was a HeNe, but if that's a typical 660nm that's pretty weird. Nice pics, BTW!
