The Meade Green Laser Pointer makes easy work of identifying objects in the night sky for a group of observers.

Teach others about the night sky and actually point to constellations and planets; the 5-milliwatt laser pointer shines a well defined and distinct green beam of light to pinpoint stars, planets, and other objects overhead.  In a truly dark sky, with everyone's eyes well adapted to the black of night, you'll see the beam for over 4 miles overhead!

Excellent teaching tool
Projects a 1.1mm beam, at 532 nanometers, up to 4.7 miles

      A good strong green laser pointer. I do mostly amatuer astronomy and astrophotography and I like having both a pointer and small red flashlight on a lanyard around my neck hanging. It's rather heavy and large/bulky I found and can tire the neck if you do long astronomy sessions and wear it all the time, works better in the ol pocket.
      Good if it's cold and you wear gloves though as it's easy to use and hold onto with gloves on.
      Nice haveing it powered by plain ol alkaline batterries also.

      It definitely does its job when it's nice and dark, however, I would like to compare this with a cheaper model green laser because I think it might not be any better. I spent the extra money thinking I would get a beam that showed well in city light situations (or even in a dark home), but this is not the case. Its construction is really no better than a $13 blue laser that I have. The green laser is much more visible than blue or red, but I didn't get a strong visible beam until I was away from any significant lighting. I couldn't discern an obvious quality distinction that warrants paying more than $25.

      Not as bright as hoped, still good

          Comments about Meade Green Laser Pointer:

          We are birders, and occasionally use a pointer to help others see a bird (never shine a laser at wildlife - only nearby and only long enough to mark the location). On a bright day, the green dot is very dim on the trunk of branch of a shady sycamore tree. In early morning light or under dense cover it s much more functional. With sturdy construction and rugged field case, the pointer is top quality, just not what I thought 5 mW would be.

              Easy to use, but note that you will need really dark skies for this to be the most effective. City skies will make the laser beam really hard or impossible to see. Out in the country, away from lights, this is tremendous.

                Comments about Meade Green Laser Pointer:

                I use laser pointers in my job as a technical trainer. This a good quality pointer but it as a weak point, the switch. In all fairness I have owned over 12 pointers over the years and without exception the switch is the first thing to break. I'd say it was me but all the trainers I have talked to all agree.I wish someone would install a wuality switch in their pointer.

                      This laser pointer is perfect for star gazing and helping to point out specific stars and constelations. I am an instructor for Outward Bound and I use it regularly to help me teach my students about astronomy. The case that this laser pointer comes with is really nice in helping to protect it as well since I am usually carrying this around with me in a backpack or a drybag.

                          it works well.

                          its something ive always wanted so i can point at stars and star clusters and planets in the night sky.

                            I like the feel of this laser pointer. It feels solid and heavy, unlike cheap pointers. However, the internal construction is no better than directly imported 5mW green laser pointers that cost a third as much. The batteries shake around because they don't fit snugly, and sometimes I have to give it a good thwack on my other palm to get it to turn on. I don't have any trouble like that with my el cheapo pointers. Also, instead of just fading in the cold like most green lasers, it shuts down entirely. If you want to use it outside in the winter to point at the sky, you'll need to use a heater or keep it warm.

                            Unless you really want something that feels solid, I wouldn't recommend spending the extra money on this.

                                    I purchased this product to use during astrophotography sessions but also found it fun to use with light writing photography. The beam is enough so that I and others standing near me can see it. It is not going to produce a light saber effect as you have to view it at a certain angle. Nice construction, excellent grip, nice case.

                                        with power point presentation, it's a very clear laser and green laser is not usual

                                            It definitely does its job when it's nice and dark, however, I would like to compare this with a cheaper model green laser because I think it might not be any better. I spent the extra money thinking I would get a beam that showed well in city light situations (or even in a dark home), but this is not the case. Its construction is really no better than a $13 blue laser that I have. The green laser is much more visible than blue or red, but I didn't get a strong visible beam until I was away from any significant lighting. I couldn't discern an obvious quality distinction that warrants paying more than $25.

                                              I HAVE HAD SEVERAL GREEN LASER POINTERS THE PAST FEW YEARS. THIS ONE IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE. THE BEAM SHOWS UP BETTER THAN MY OTHER ONES DURING DAYLIGHT SITUATIONS. IT SEEMS TO BE BUILT STURDIER THAN THE OTHER ONES. IT COMES IN A NICE PRESENTATION CASE. OVERALL A GOOD BUY.

                                                I purchased this pointer to use during an astronomy camp with children. It allowed us to "touch" the stars and provided an impressive beam about two hours after the sun had set. I met every one of my expectations.
