That looks like about what I'm looking for. Playing around this afternoon 
I find the laser isn't terribly well aligned, but neither is the chuck 
I've got it mounted in, so the beam path of the pattern 30" away ranges 
in the 10-12 mm diameter area.  Way too big to just shine it straight 
onto the imaging chip. So I'll have to interpose a frosted surface, and 
focus the camera on that frosted surface in order to get that image path 
on the cameras imaging chip. Problems, but not insurmountable.

Thank you very much, Oscar.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
