Today my Coherent Compass 315M-100 arrived. I plugged it in to the mains and wow what a bright light. It is uncomfortable to look at the green dot on the white wall and it lights up the whole room. First the light was rather 'weak'. After a few minutes it started to twinkle. I got nervous and thought there was something wrong until I remembered it has to warm up first and find a stabile position. Then it got stable and the light was shiny bright. I noticed though that the beam is quite divergent.
