    Default Bliss Light

    Bliss Lights are great - but WOW the price.

    First photo.
    Purchased $20 laser on Amazon.
    Second photo.

    Need to work on placement but I am pretty happy with the overall effect.

    I think two units would really cover the entire house.

    I am going to get purple laser on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/US-STOCK-Pow...item25907423e4 - and in s second laser unit switch the lasers out for purple on Halloween.

    I have a couple of those lasers off ebay as well, but I haven't put them out yet... I think I'm almost out of time eh? LOL

    They aren't meant for outdoors but I was experimenting with them inside a tupperware container. As long as the laser output is pretty close to the plastic container it seems pretty sharp.

    My plan was to try and mount them under the eaves and light the snow on the ground.

    They seem to be pretty responsive on an AC SSR. I thought the power transformer might introduce some lag but that hasn't seemed to be a problem in testing.

    I also wanted to pull the two apart and switch some of the lasers so one would have two reds and the other two greens, however they are different sizes and I didn't go much further than simply disabling one on each.

    Maybe this should be tomorrow's project!

    It's cold out... So I decided that I would make a little truss mount so that when I do brave the cold and go out and mount mine under the eaves it won't take as long... Just have to wait for the glue to dry now! Anything to help me procastinate is good! LOL Here are some photos.

    I picked up three cheap ones from amazon... Very similar to these.. Green laser does not like the cold weather... Red is just bright enough to see.. Barely Our temps were 35 last night with no green laser... Anything around the 45+ they work ok. They really like 50 or better.. Bring them inside and they warm up they work great... Put them outside and you can watch the green fade away... I covered all vent holes and blocked the fan and it helped some.. Ran out of time to see if there was something I could do... Left them outside and put on next years to do list

    Oh.. I took a gallon zip lock bag and wrapped them tightly around with electric tape... Just make sure you lens is pulled as tight as possible or you loose effects...

    A lot of work 4 days before Christmas - nice work.
    Do these units really need the cooling fan or will my Chicago weather work?
