You can't have both a low divergence and a small diameter of the beam. The lens27 was a short FL lens which gave a small initial beam, but with a large divergence. Other lenses such as rothiner's 7020-H lens have a high FL which produces a larger initial beam, but with a low divergence.

Default Re: lens for red collimation

Well, you could try the 650-G-1. FS: 650-G-1 Glass Lens Modification! - Fit for AixiZ - 25% Increase for Red!

I believe it has a FL of 4.02 mm vs. lens27's FL of 3.3mm. The 650-G-1 has a NA of 0.6 where as the lens27 has a NA of 0.45.

However, I don't have any experience with the 650-G-1, so someone else would have to say whether you'd get similar beam specs to the ones you stated (although the math says you should).
