Laser Diode - 5mW 650nm Red - diameter

Hi,
I purchased your laser diode. At a distance of 20ft, the "point" of the laser has a diameter of 2.5 inches. This is incredible large compared to other lasers I have. Is this normal?

Thanks!

These have a focus adjustment. You should be able to adjust it to get a tighter beam.
