Hi Guys, as promised I’ll share with you some quick photos of that 593.5nm unit I scored on eBay.
It arrived safely from Russia and is is great working order. Can’t believe I now own a 50mW 593.5nm lab unit to add to my collection. [image]
I will try to get some beamshots after Christmas when I will be then regularly using the unit.
Here is the laser head.
And the laser sticker.
The complete unit. It comes with a Euro Schuko Type F plug so had to get a Schuko to UK plug adaptor. The power supply is complete with an interlock and key switch. Mustn’t lose that key.
And now at least a couple of it working.
Look at that lovely bright amber spot. :drool: The dot seemed to stay TEM00 the whole time which is good for 593.5nm. The dot starts of moderately bright, and after a short warm up it increases to a nice stable bright round spot.
And apologies, a very poor attempt at trying to show the beam in a lit room. The beam is lovely and tight which if you look very carefully you can just make out in some areas of the photo. [image]
Overall, I’m very impressed with the unit so far with the short time I have used it. I’ll update this thread in the near future with some more pics of it lasing. Hopefully will be able to get a good few beamshots to share, as well as a comparison with my 589 Spartan which is similar in power.
