I regret the delay in responding to you.  Our
weather has been too sunny to use lasers
for more testing.  I conducted my initial tests
on a dark dreary day during the winter.

1 degree at 20 yards
2 degrees at 30 yards
3 degrees at 40 yards

Yes.  Laser pointers are not strong enough
to be seen on a sunny day.  (Take one
out and try it.)  I believe that a laser that
is bright enough could cause eye damage.

I plan to try more tests later this summer
with more powerful lasers.
