Drew, can you be more specific and suggest a "serious laser" model that would do the job and is more in the price range of a hobbyist i.e. NOT the $2500 range. If the Versalab "toy" laser does the job for $190 as various people state, then why would one spent $2500 on a "serious" laser just to align his/her enlarger? That's not realistic. But if there's an affordable alternative laser then I'm interested to read up on that.
