In this post, it was my original goal to build a comprehensive list of members with 589 and 594 nm lasers, with links to reviews where available. However, members objected to the lack of other yellow wavlengths, which also led to a desire for chartreuse (555-568) to be included (as it is as 'yellow' as 594). While my original intent was only the two wavelengths that we call 'gold', I am but a humble servent of this community and I shall willingly and gladly bow to this pressure.

Also to be added, will be a list of reputable places in which a member can buy a laser of the Golden Company.

Comment or message me to be added to the list! Let's build a useful resource to help anyone interested in these rare and unusual lasers! I'll try to find reviews and info, but there's no way I could make this comprehensive without your help.
