LASER PADLES AND AUSTRALIAN BIRDING The Australian birding community is getting into the craze of laser pointers, after a group of birders took to the internet to post about their love affair with the technology.
They’ve even launched a website dedicated to their hobby.
But what is laser pointers and how do you use them?

“I’ve seen all the lasers and seen all these things that were actually made by lasers and then I’ve seen some that weren’t.”
Scott, a laser-pointer enthusiast since his teenage years, started taking laser pointers in the 1990s and has since sold more than a dozen laser pointers to people across the country.
He has sold hundreds of thousands of laser-pointers to Australian birders and has even built his own laser-guided jetpack, which he said he uses to fly to the top of mountains.
He’s a keen golfer too, and his hobby has inspired his son to pursue golfing, too.
“Dad, you’ve got to have a laser,” Scott said.
“You’ve got nothing better to do than to play golf.”
We’re the only group of people that do it, and we’re doing it for fun.
“You can get the laser pointer from a range of sources, including hobbyist laser-point sellers, but Scott says he prefers to use the laser pointers of Australian birder Jeffery Silliman.
Mr Sillim, who runs the popular website Australian Birders, has sold thousands of lasers and is the first person in Australia to sell a laser pointers set of his own.
The Sillims bought their first laser-pads from a Sydney company called LaserLasers, which was founded by a team of hobbyist hunters and birders in 2009.
They then made a deal with Australian Laser Pads, which makes its own laser pointers.
Scott said he was impressed with the quality of the laser-points he bought from the Sillimmans.
But, he said, his interest in the technology didn’t end there.
There were laser- pointers made in the US, Germany and Switzerland and they were all excellent, he told 7.30.
I saw the UK laser-pencil and I’ve never looked back,” he said.
So Scott and his son, Ryan, set out to buy a laser that they thought would perform as well as the US laser-pointers.
They chose a set of four laser-tips with a range-finder, because they thought it would be easier to find a laser point that worked with each of them.
Ryan, an IT consultant who lives in Sydney, and Scott took their pick from a variety of suppliers, including the LaserLabs range.
In December last year, they made a video about the process on Scott’s YouTube channel, titled Laser Pointers For Everyone.
LaserPointersForEveryone.com is a joint venture between the Australian Laser Pointer Association (ALPA) and the Australian Lending Club, a lending service that lets people borrow expensive laser pointers from other people.
According to ALPA, there are a total of 5,000 different laser pointers available, with some costing up to $1000, and the range varies between $20 and $200.
Most people will be happy to use one of the cheap ones.
You need a good pair of eyes to use it properly.
It’s just so much fun.
They say it has been a really rewarding experience, Scott said, and he’s grateful for having the opportunity to share it with people.
“It’s been a great learning experience,” he told Seven.
“It’s also been really exciting for us.
It has been fun to build it up and learn about the laser.”
People will always say it’s the most powerful laser in the world, but it’s really not.
“Lasers are used in everything from sports to astronomy, and laser pointers are commonly used in birding, because the light from the tip of the pointer can penetrate birds’ feathers and be used to guide them.
There are also many uses for laser pointers beyond birding.

Birders have used lasers to target birders on the course at the University of Technology Sydney, in the same way that birders can use lasers to hunt deer.
Another application for laser-Pointers is in the creation of drone-tracking systems, or bird-finding
