Great product

I gave this to my husband. He uses it for presentations in classrooms, and outdoors for starviewing. This is not a product for a child. Keep the box it comes in for storage, its 1 button design is simple to use, but can easily be turned on accidentally.

Not recommended for astro use

I bought it for indicating celestial points such as constellations. It worked well for a week, but soon after that the laser would dim to less than half strength about one second after pressing the button. The reduced beam is not visible to the viewer so fails as a star pointer. The device has residual value as a cat teaser. Replacing the standard alkaline Duracell batteries with fresh ones did not solve the issue.

Good Green Laser

I used this in photography. It had a good weight in my hand. It was easy to manipulate. It was easy to turn on and off.

I was hoping I could use this for Astronomy Teaching but it is not good enough for a clear night sky :)

Very nice, but...

By

from Philadelphia, PA  -  Casual/ Recreational

The laser pointer is very good. Very well made, the laser beam is very powerful. There are couple things I don't like. 1. the on/off button has to be pressed all the time. I would like to be able to click and turn on, and it stays on, until you don't turn it off. 2. after the first 1 sec the laser beam weakens to about 20% of the initial power. I don't know if that's normal, but I think it's too much.

Green laser pointer

By

from Wickenburg, AZ  -  Casual/ Recreational

I bought this item to use as a pointer for public astronomy outings. It works great to show places in the sky. The only con, (and not the fault of this product), is being 5 mW and that it is not visible to all people over 20 feet away. For the price, you cannot beat this laser. a 50 mW laser would show up all the time but starts around $250.00

Highly recommended

By

from Denton, TX  -  Professional Guide

I use this laser pointer in college classrooms to pinpoint spots on maps, charts, photographs, etc. It is very bright, and the green light is strong and steady. The fact that the pointer light is green rather than red makes it an eye-catcher immediately. Good purchase (even if a little expensive).

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Dallas S  will the beam shoot straight to about 75 ft and be able to be seen at that distance?
HARRY R  Yes, and further. this is an awesome laser pointer, You can't go wrong for the price. I bought it back in 2011 and am still using it.
Shopper  how far does it shine ?
ING C  How far does it shine? Technically the answer depends on many environmental factors, which I won't elaborate. But here is an example to give you some idea of how far. At 2 pm in Southern California with bright sunlight and no clouds in the sky, I pointed to a neighbor's beige wall in the shade and clearly saw the laser spot. I used a golf range finder to measure the distance. It was 94 yards away. Hope this helps.
Summer R  Does it have an on/off switch?
RICHARD L  Yes, it does have an on/off switch. I can't recommend it, however, because it lights up only about one-half the time. Old batteries, new batteries -- doesn't matter. Maybe I bought the one pointer of this type and brand that doesn't work correctly, but probably not. I had put it away shortly after it arrived, simply because it was so undependable. When I received a request from Adorama to evaluate the pointer, I used it again today. Same result: it lights up only about half the time.
