Hello Everyone!

So I just checked and the last time I was on here was about 18 months ago?!? Woah.

I was just sitting on my couch today, and some fog started to roll in, that triggered a thought about lasers and that I haven't been here in forever! So, what have I missed exactly? As I said, I've been gone about 18 months.

My reason for leaving was pretty simple, I lost interest. My interest in other hobbies + the stupid Australian laser laws made me drift away from lasers. I can't guarantee I'm going to buy too many lasers anytime soon, but I certainty enjoy looking around at everyone else's beautiful lasers.

If I was going to buy a laser, I'm thinking it would probably either be a low power exotic pointer, or a lab laser (most likely exotic). Any suggestions would be appreciated. Remember to tell me of anything important that I've missed.

Thanks,
Gun

If you want a quick look at the new(er) diodes just look at DTR's diode page. https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf/home/diodes
A lot of things can happen in 18 months for the laser hobby!

PS. The diode (NDG 700mW 520nm) on the very bottom of the list was just added. AFAIK DTR hasn't said anything about it yet.:shhh:

Sounds good! I'll have to take a look at some of the new stuff shortly :)


There was also a 589nm craze recently due to Dragon lasers 50mW spartan.
Oh really? Woah. I've always wanted a 589nm, hmm.

I'm slowly getting back into it myself! Good to see even more Aussies are on here now and all the new stuff that's now become available!
