The field of astronomy has been around for centuries. In the beginning stargazing was done by mapping the sky with just the naked eye, but as we evolved tools were made such as telescopes, photometers, computers, and our favorite: lasers.

So, what’s the best astronomy laser pointer?

The best astronomy laser pointer is almost always going to be a green laser pointer. With a power output of up to 5mW, a green laser pointer is powerful enough to reach long distances and bright enough to be seen at night.

But, what about planetariums? A crucial, yet often forgotten, part of astronomy is the use of planetariums. While a green laser pointer is best for outdoor stargazing, a red laser pointer is best for “indoor stargazing” aka planetariums.

Ideally, the best laser pointer for someone in the field of astronomy would be a laser pointer that can produce both a red and green laser. The Alpec Emerald Duo Red and Green Laser Pointer was created for this exact reason. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, the Emerald Duo Red and Green Laser Pointer is the best astronomy laser pointer on the market in terms of versatility, quality and price.
