Re: videos/pics of my agate sphere, optics & laser

Man, that sphere kicks @$$! Great pics! :D

I also use smoke, I put a bunch of burned matches in a small container and add some candle-wax. I let this "mix", if you will, catch fire and then I put a lid on it and it makes a TON of smoke. But of course it kills my eyes, and I get headache if I stay in the room for too long. :(


I'm saving money for a smoke machine now.

Thanks for the comments. [smiley=dankk2.gif] Photography is one of my other hobbies. I probably have around $3,000 worth of photo equipment.

There are some more pictures in the last post on the first page if you haven't seen them. I think my favorite picture so far is one of the VGR pictures. The 405 kind of "took over" in those 2 shots.

Yeah. The camera "sees" 405nm better than the human eye.

Nice pictures.

Peace,

Those pics with the sphere thing are really cool :eek:

If they were bigger and clearer, they would be wallpaper worthy!

Burning a hair.



My opinion of Mediacom.



Burning the coating on the outside of one on my lasers.

Well, I already have wallpaper that is awesome, so I don't need it...

I'm just commenting on the quality and colours :)

I decided to take some more pics today. I'll probably redo the second picture once I get my ArIon from Dave.

Here is the before picture:

Man, I always drooled over argons with people like Daguin and Gooeygus showing them off all the time - now I have two sitting in my closet and all these Ar/Kr lasers are popping up all over. It's not fair :( (grats on the purchase though ;) )

I know what you mean. Now I want a high power one.

This unit came from Dave. I can't wait to see it running at normal operating range. The remote interface should be here today.

Re: videos/pics of my agate sphere, optics & lasers

Very cool pic's Dr_Evil thought since you were showing round objects I would show you one of my round objects it's a 8" crystal ball with a couple different color lasers trained on it.

and just some violet lasers.


Later
Pyro...
