Does anyone know anything about the current offering of Laser Pointers? Specifically, Green Laser? Apparently, there is a liberal usage of the power ratings?

I find a high level of irony in a thread about lasers posted by a guy nicknamed "Argon"

THAT's pretty good. The nickname goes back to the college days. It started out as R-san. One night after some serious partying as I was draped immobile over the recliner - somebody who was in freshman chem said "R-san....more like Argon the fully inert gas". It stuck.

The laser is for my Birdwatching class. I have a Dr. from the local hospital in the class and he came in with a green laser. It is bright enough to be seen during the day and is a great way to point out the birds (which can be quite difficult to locate) to the new class members. Beats trying to point out specific branches 50 feet away in a stand of trees with just a finger and words.....

If the lasers are strong enough, can you blow the birds up?


That's not really the point of bird watching, is it?

I don't know about shooting them down - but I guess I could blind them?

Read some of the laser pointer "hobbyist" forums. You won't want a high-power model to play with anymore.

But would they enjoy a green beam laser? I thought that was the point of the green ones, you can see the beam.
