    Default What are you guys using for windows?

    Since I am using single-mode DI diode builds, I don't want to waste any of those precious milliwatts. That said, what are you guys using for AR windows on your projectors? I was looking into these: http://www.edmundoptics.com/optics/w...-windows/48925 and was wondering if anyone had any feedback. Should I even worry about AR? Are there any better than these?

    Thanks.

    Yep, I put Edmunds optics AR glass on all my projectors now. Don't put them down once the film is removed, you'll lose them! Eerily invisible!

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.

    It'll pass it but it will reflect about 5% of it I would think.

    You can ask them a special coating, but the price will be greatly higher.
