So are starlight's distance and clarity claims with a diffused and unfocused beam?

wonder if there are minimum anti tamper regs for the diffuser?

when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

That's a new one on me. :lol: :roll:

So as long as you leave in the easily hand removable ND filters you're safe as houses. :lolno:

Does anyone else remember a video buy a certain foreign sounding gentleman that showed him shining a high powered laser at the farmer ? If I remember correctly the farmer was standing outside his cottage talking to someone, and the laser was being directly at his face.
Wonder if he's gone blind yet? :shock:

Link was of a 50w laser pointed at a beer bottle from about 2 feet and it literally blew the top off it!

Mind your eyes and indeed any exposed skin.

Anything of this power as a mobile illuminator is really reserved for fans of cataracts and retinal burns.

To put it into perspective, we would only power up a device like this in a controlled test environment with control of personnel and full PPE for laser radiation exposure.

Also people selling class 4 lasers like this to the general public puts them at real risk from a custodial sentence. :roll:
