    Default Coherent Purelight star

    So its finally mine.
    The system Ive wanted since I was a teenager.
    the Coherent Purelight Star whitelight ion laser.
    I can finally say, its mine.
    A year ago DSLi_Jon posted a for sale thread for this laser.
    last month I got the head, this weekend ,after some power issues, I got the power supply.
    Now Im proud to call the system *mine* and its sitting on the kitchen table waiting for its first time out.Click image for larger version.

    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.

    C'mon. The day is half over and you haven't posting ANYTHING yet !

    And I think that as good as the hardware there might be, the girlfriends "software" may be a winning influence on your decision.

    Nate,

    Very nice. I've always followed the advice - don't put the lasers where you wouldn't sleep. Between the heat and humidity here, I still follow that. Maybe it's less of an issue in Cali? Goodluck with your GF and your new toy.

    Very nice find! The Purelight's are very nice, you should open it up and see if any of the ampules are still intact.

    LOL! =)
    yeah it should be called the Coherent "Nightlight" cause its dark as night inside that thing right now.
    One *minor issue* is the fact that I dont have 3 Phase just yet and Jon is recommending against an R.P.C. citing line/phase voltage fluctuations. It makes sense to me. Im going to have to crunch some numbers and invest in a used decent 20 KW genny!
    -where are the lumia pics? = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxXX3...eature=related J/K!, soon tho,like maybe this weekend!
    -And I think that as good as the hardware there might be, the girlfriends "software" may be a winning influence on your decision.
    Ummmm, nope! she can store her tampons in the garage before I store my ion in the garage. =)
    Actually Ive heard recommendations from others that it is a good idea to keep the system in the house where the temperature and humidity can be controlled. Humidity is pretty much a non issue here in Sacramento.
    -Yeah Nate, don't be as lazy as me!
    Actually, your storing up energy for *Baylem* where you will be needed to take all the pictures and stay up every minute of the whole 3~4 days!

    And theres two ampoules that have been opened. the head came from Laseriums headquarters in Van Nuyes where it sat on a wall shelf all of its life doing nothing but being the studio laser for all 9,000 hours. Pretty decent and very clean system.

    I cant wait to power it up and just play with it, experiment with it, make it walk and talk and do pretty images on the wall.
    Will there be three phase!!!!
