A holographic sight which includes a base having at least one connector for mounting the base on a small arm, and a hologram of a reticle pattern, a compact laser light source for illuminating the hologram, and a power source for the laser diode, each mounted on the base. The sight also includes an achromatizer supported in the path of the light beam for reducing shifts in the position of the reticle pattern due to variations in the wavelength of the light beam emitted from the laser diode. The sight may further include means for circularizing the generally elliptical beam emitted by the laser diode to provide a uniform illumination pattern for the hologram. A brightness adjuster and position adjuster, for varying the brightness and relative position of the reticle, respectively, may also be provided.
