Astro Aimer's green laser is perfect for pinpointing star locations as well as any other pointing needs. The two-color LED flashlight is ideal for any indoor and outdoor illumination. Its multi-functions make Astro Aimer a very useful tool for astronomers, educators, hikers, campers, any outdoor goers, rescuers, law enforcement, military, CSI laser investigation tools and many others
High Output Green Laser with Automatic Power Control Circuit
Astro Aimer contains a true 5mW high power green laser, 532nm wavelength. The green laser is 20 times brighter than red laser at the same output power, as perceived by human eyes. The extremely visible green laser line allows an audience within about a 3 meter (10') radius around you to clearly trace the laser line to the intended star. The Astro Aimer has a built-in feedback circuit that constantly monitors laser output power to keep the output stable. The control allows the laser to operate more stably under cold or warm ambient temperatures.
Laser ON Light Indicator
When the laser is switched on, the blue LED light under laser switch glows dimly to signal you that the device is on so you will not accidentally point the laser towards others or yourself.
Variable Brightness Modes Red LED
The red LED has a total of 3 brightness modes. Low and intermediate modes are for map reading, and high brightness mode (4,000 mcd) is for night illumination without disrupting other stargazers' dark adapted vision. Activate the red light modes by turning front flashlight bezel to the left.
3 Highly Efficient White LEDs
Three white LEDs provide true color and bright illumination (approx. 21,000 mcd total), the best tool for packing up, searching for lost items, identifying colored items, and field illumination. Activate the white light by turning front flashlight bezel to the right.
A voltage regulated power control circuit keeps both Red and White LEDs at a constant brightness. The circuitry keeps the LEDs operating at maximum brightness until the minimum voltage cut off point (4 volt). LED brightness does not decay according to the battery drain as with other battery powered flashlights.
In addition, you may turn ON either of the LED flashlights in combination with the activated green laser to pin point an illuminated object. This feature is useful especially when the object is large, which requires additional lighting for better visual confirmation.
Knurled LED Flashlight Switch Control
The knurled flashlight cap can be easily operated with a thick glove on a cold night. Also the distinguishable detents on each light mode help you to operate in the dark.
Easy Telescope Aiming Adjustment
The HoTech Astro Aimer's time delayed laser switch frees both hands for telescope aiming without having to hold the laser ON button as with other green pointers.

Quality green laser pointer and red/white flashlightPros: Cons: Comments:
I purchased this laser pointer for star parties at my home observatory. I thought it would sit in its box from event to event, but the red LED flashlight is so easy to use (and has adjustable brightness) that this has become my default light source while observing. It is also well made and the metal construction gives it a solid feel in the hand.

Our favorite tool/toyPros:
Durable,Bright,Long battery lifeCons: Comments:
We saw this at an outreach at the Observatory. For beginners like us, it seemed like an easy way to get started star hopping. We upgraded our finder and started using this laser. We instantly went from two fools randomly shoving a dob around to two fools looking at what they meant to. On cloudy nights it's handy for pestering the cat.

If you do not mind paying a little morePros:
Multipurpose,Long battery lifeCons: Comments:
Use as a flashlight tracks, laser pointer to show something in the sky, the red light not to disturb the view and at home I use it in the telescope.
