    Default stacking red LOC's ?

    What is the ideal height to offset the reds when stacking on top of one another?
    Thanks

    the axiz lenses have kind of a large spot at aperture when focused at infinity. i find this makes knife-edging reds kind of unsatisfactory.

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    as an example an aixiz lens will give you a 5mm by 3mm beam at aperture.

    so i oset the height between each diode at 4.5mm

    knife edging with big beams is much easier than small beams

    It all depends on how much power you want and how big your mirrors are. For a four banger with out telescope and 3mm mirrors use a 4mm FL lens. For the same with 5mm mirrors use 8mm FL. Aixiz glass is the best value here IMO. Note: Aixiz glass lens and LOC are hard to get a good beam after a telescope. Not impossible, but hard. Andy_con has built over a million different combos. I'm sure he will chime in at some point.

    you would need telescopics when using aixiz lens, well if doing more than four diodes that is.

    ts probably best to work backwards, so what power do you want? then work out the best way to achieve that
