Product Info

Manufacturer Description

High output green laser
5mW Class IIIa high power green laser at 532nm wavelength. Green laser is 20 times brighter than red laser at the same output power as perceived by human eyes. The effective visual range allows an audience within a 3 meter (10') radius around you to clearly trace the laser line to the star.

Automatic laser power feedback control
The laser has built-in feedback circuit that constantly monitors laser output power to keep the laser output stable. The control allows the laser to operate more stably under cold or warm ambient temperatures.

Momentary laser activation switch
The round laser activation switch allows momentary activation of laser which is very useful in presentation that requires a quick pointing of the subject(s).

Constant ON / OFF laser activation switch for convenient telescope aiming
When using your Astro Presenter as a finderscope on your telescope, the constant ON laser switch frees both your hands to aim your telescope without holding the laser activation button, unlike conventional green pointers with a momentary switch.

Optional remote pressure switch
Extension remote switch allows user to activate the laser without disturbing the telescope to which it is attached. See HoTech's Laser Remote Switch for details.

Optional telescope mount
Economical way to mount your green laser pointer. See HoTech's Laser Mounting System for details.

      5.0 HoTech green laser pointer

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Lightweight,Compact,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This product is better than the Orion or Meade green laser pointer for very little more. The main difference is the button to turn it on/off is on the bottom and recessed. I had my old green laser pointer in a box out of the box it came with, with some other stuff. It broke, button got jammed in a permanent on position. I also like that you have two position you can use the pointer in, permanently on and termporarily on.

      It works really well under low temperatures. In winter nights other laser pointers of well known astronomy products brands fail when outside temperature goes below 10
