|Pros=Clear image, wide field of view. Can set the range to any value between the minimum and maximum values, which allows you to get the highest resolution possible for an application (i.e. if you are interested in something 8.5 meters away, you could set the range to exactly 8.5 meters)

They do not obstruct the image, however objects are disfigured as they cross from one beam to another. The most recent instrument upgrade resulted in a few issues with image quality. Hopefully, this will be resolved after we send the instrument back for repair/upgrade.
