Can any (Physicist) explain this laser-weirdness that I'm seeing? Answered
I've got some cheap-o red-lasers.
Up close on surfaces I see what looks like old-fashioned monochrome TV static in miniature* (and red).
Other people see it too, I think it's some kind of "Quantum-noise" but would like other opinions.
*I don't like looking at it - it reminds me of this.
