    The buyer for this seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth. Since I haven't heard from him in a month, I'm putting this system back up for sale.

    It has a new home and unfortunately needs a new tube. I haven't been able to find a source for replacement CuBr tubes. The last time I spoke to the folks at Spectronika was right after they shut down and was told that perhaps replacements could be arranged in the future, but messages inquiring into that possibility have gone unanswered. So yeah, I guess life goes on. They were great people to work with and I loved that laser.
