Astro Aimer Gen II
W e l l - T h o u g h t - O u t D e s i g n f o r S t a r g a z e r s
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.
Features Beat All Laser Pointers:
High Output Green Laser with Automatic Power Control Circuit
Aimer contains a true 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 within about 3 meter radius around you to clearly trace the laser line to the intended star.
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
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 to others or yourself (see photo shown below).
Variable Brightness Modes Red LED
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 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
