Yeah, I never really bothered with IR when I was building my rainbow except for one 808nm. It did look pretty cool on camera:
I am definitely interested in 561nm!My logical next steps would be 650nm, then 405nm, 445nm, 520nm, 685nm, then 589nm and/or 593nm, then 561nm.
Are more of you guys interested in the GLP-561nm? I can check prices with CNI and we might get a good GB price on them.
671nm is by far more visible than the 808nm I had.OTOH everything above 650nm looks very similar if you compensate the brightness. You can see the difference, but it has to be on the right surface and you have to be looking for it
We all might have them, but we don´t know without the SpectroI remember someone (Cyparagon maybe) saying he had a <440nm and a >410nm binned diode.
The wavelengths you have at the moment are already nice, the more you anticipate your next buy the more you'll forget to enjoy your current one. I know it's nigh on impossible but instead of thinking about what to buy next, think about fun and creative things to do with your existing lasers.I am definitely interested in 561nm!
But then again...im broke...
Edit: Counting down the hours until I go to the UPS facility to pick-up the Aquarius. Finding it very hard to sleep
*Updated*This was the original objective of my collection, had to lower my expectations a bit after selling off all my lasers a few years ago. Gradually getting there again though. Below are all the wavelengths I could find in production pens. I believe all can be found in 5mW varieties. Not including engineering samples, experimental diodes, or limited/rare stuff. Only visible wavelengths. Not including wavelengths that are within the margin of error of another. (ie "445" could be 447, 444, etc...)
*Apparently exists, only one on the list I have yet to see anyone one the forum with in pen form. Incredibly expensive.
