Astro Aimer G3 - Water Resistant
Well-Throught-Out Design for Stargazers and Outdoor Goers
Aimer G3 has all the features of Astro Aimer Gen II and the same
dimensions and appearance of Astro Aimer Gen II. In addition, new
Astro Aimer G3 is dust and water resistant with redesigned
internal construction and an anti-reflection coated optical glass
window to optimize its outdoor applications.
Water Resistant for Broader Applications
you can take your Astro Aimer anywhere, including the dewiest of star
parties. It's perfect for camping, hiking and rafting. Use it in the
rain, or for any emergency situation in almost any environment. 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.
Astro Aimer G3 Features (same as Astro Aimer Gen II):
Factory Tuned High Output Green laser with Automatic Power Control Circuit
5mW high power green laser, 532nm wavelength. 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 in
about 3 meter radius around you to clearly trace the laser line to the
Our Astro Aimer G3 has a built-in feedback
circuit that constantly monitors the laser output power to keep it
stable. The control allows the laser to operate stably under cold or
warm ambient temperatures.
Laser ON Light Indicator
the laser is turned on, a blue LED light under the laser switch glows
dimly to signal you the device is on, so you will not accidentally
point the laser to others or yourself (as shown above).
Variable Brightness Modes Red LED
are total of 3 brightness modes. Low and intermediate modes are for map
reading. High brightness mode (4,000 mcd) is for night illumination
without disrupting other stargazers' dark-adapted vision. Red-light
modes are activated by turning front flashlight bezel to the left.
3 High Efficient White LEDs
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.
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
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
time delayed laser switch frees both hands for telescope aiming without
having to hold the laser ON button as with other green pointers. Please
