Hello!

I am looking for reputable companies that test for optimal output to ensure astronomy laser pointers (532nm) are between 3mW and 5mW (or ideally 4mW and 5mW).

Does anyone know of companies that do testing on laserpointers after they have been manufactured? Or that would do the testing to ensure we get the right power? We run a UFO watching group and I don't want to take on any risk with possible eye damage.

Also do you think 5mW is adequate? I have a laser pointer I got off ebay that says it is 5mW but I realize now that it is probably way overspec. Works great though.

Thanks in advance!
