I had a Red Dot sight for a number of years. And I had a laser so if anyone asked (Grandkids) I could send them right into the sky.
Last year I got a Z bolt laser and liked it so much, I've removed the Red Dot sight.
The green laser is so much easier to work with. But I, too, only use mine during alignments.
Oh, occasionally I will use it momentarily to estimate how close an imaging session is getting to neighbors trees, or the like.
Never have had it mess with my imaging, and I don't go to star parties.
I almost went to one once. But found out my 10 pound dog was not welcome.
You don't want my little buddy, you don't want me either, buddy. Take your rules and shove them.
I've never had any issues because I don't interfere with any of the aircraft invading my airspace. I just wait a few seconds and they pass.
Most of my exposures are 300 seconds, so I don't even see aircraft in my imaging.
So most of the Anti-Laser BS is a non-issue to me.
I liked the Green Laser so much, I got one in Blue and mounted it with my Binoculars. Works great for aligning those.
I ordered a Telrad once, and returned it. Not really fond of plastic.
