    Default IONs : Projectors/Tables that re-use the PCAOM waste beam

    Does anyone have some pics of projectors or beam table setups that use the waste beam from the pcaom? Are most of these setups with the pcaom sideways? It seems I will need to have a table 2' long if I want to re-drive that waste beam to another use.

    Not the best picture but you can see the MM1 a bit in front of the PCAOM on the left that goes through a pinhole to a LUMIA wheel. If I can find my actual pictures of that projector I will post a few more.

    A non PC-AOM pic:

    ??? No, just pick it off, man! If you pick it with an equi-tri prism (∆) on a rotatable-post, you should be able to keep it fairly 'tight', if you wanna say, shoot it a-ways down to a wheel or beam-rail... I guess it will depend, too, on what you're planning to 'do' with the waste... lumia? dichro-picks / splitters? how far-away from the AOM?etc...

    The PCAOM 'waste' is soooo-not 'waste'... it's just the 'other half'... ...here's a bit of 'inspiration' from a Laser Images CSL... njoy...

    Depends on which 'pickoff' the laserist chose... This thing was like a 'laser grand piano'...options and combination-possibilities, galore...

    That's one of the most mindblowing optical fx I've ever seen - Fiber-turret - *pure genius*, from those brilliant Laser Image employees of the past... it does stuff like this: (..not the animated b-fly-part or the 'auroras'...the other yummies......

    ...etc... and, you could 'defocus' it, on the fly, to get even more amazing fx... think: citylights, at night, 'blurred-out' by depth-of-field... spellbinding fx...

    I'm pretty sure CSL stood for 'Cream your Stinkin Laserpants'...
