Greetings Bright People from a forum newbie!

I joined to see if I was the only one that has discovered that putting a bright flashlight into the eyepiece hole of a reflector telescope (10" Dobsonian) created an incredibly coherent sharp edged beam that throws hella far? Green LEDs create an awesome beam. I'm interested in the brightest green LED that could fit into my 2" hole. I'm using this LUMENSHOOTER A8Plus and it is pretty awesome, especially the green LED. I'm interested in using this at festivals that feature a bunch of glowy LED magic at night.
