    Default Coherent Sapphire 488-20 OPSL with controller

    Up for sale is one lovely Coherent Sapphire OPSL, 20mW@488 nm. Sam's Laser FAQ has the manual for this laser here, and Coherent has a datasheet with specs here.
    Post offers here or PM me. It's a nice laser, and a great way to get the 488nm argon wavelength without the ridiculous power draw of a small argon-ion laser. It's also controllable via RS232.
    I'll also take trades of interesting lasers, preferably big green ones (in the unlikely case that one of you has a Laserscope lying around that you'd like to get rid of ).

    Lasersam was looking for a controller for one of these, might be worth a msg on alt.lasers or send him an email.

    How many hours are on the head and power supply? Query it with ?c when it is running at p=20 and let me know the result.

    I am interested if the price is right.
    CLICKY!!!

    I can't query the head because I don't have an RS232 cable
    The LEDs tell me the head has between 4K and 5K hours on it.

    It ended up getting sold, not traded.

    Fair enough, well done you

    I thought for a minute we were going to see some nice pictures of a large frame ion

    As much as I would have loved a large frame ion, the logistics of transporting and storing such a beast scare me
