From DealExtreme website advert, worth taking note of...

Most of these and other made in China green lasers do not have IR filters and thus can be hazardous to eyes without proper protective eye wear. By all means if you are unsure of what this means get the 5mW version for your safety.

It's worth reading up about if you aren't too sure, one website I found is here...

So you stand in your garden and point it towards the north star, shinining a beam on it from this pen. You say to the GF 'Look see, THAT is the North star - The one I'm pointing it at???

Is that what they are suggesting...Great for pointing objects from long distance, such as stars

Gotta get one of those!!

Quite a useful tool for the right job actually, for example I know a tree surgeon who uses one when discussing prospective work with the customer, if it's a high up job then it help's him and the client to clarify and pin point specific area's that need his attention before having to climb up there.

Just ordered one to do some of that long-exposure photography that DCX showed above, so thanks OP! Also ordered a tiny universal remote for my keyring so I can mess with the TV

this is a very good deal or people who are interested at looking at stars, eg amateur astronomers, got one from ebay from China a while ago for about £20-30.

we bought a couple of green lasers a few years ago, they cost a LOT more than this.
just be careful when playing, cats eyes are very sensitive, humans don't want burned retinas either.
treat them with the respect you'd give a loaded weapon and you will be ok.
These are handy if you're a security guard alone at night on a building site.

just bought one ..the dogs love chasing them

No the Laser doesn't illuminate the star, it draws a line in the direction of the star in the sky, What you see is the reflection from all the crap in our lower atmosphere.

Thanks for that. I have been reading the description and some comments with no small amount of suspicion as I couldn't comprehend how you could possibly point out stars in the night sky as it would take years for the light from the laser to reach any stars and bounce back. I'm still not convinced, is there really enough stuff up there for a laser to bounce back from? Some people use lasers as pointers for presentations, though I suspect this one is waaaay too powerful for that. Nice price.

Is it only the green lasers that have the IR filter question over them? Reds don't have this?

dcx_badass

No reds do aswell.



Thanks. I don't know whats going on here with these but why did the posted article link just focus down on green lasers? buzzle.com/art…tml It was as if red lasers are exempt from these problems.

Not doubting your word, just trying to get a handle on whats what.
