Default First laser assembled from DTR kit

After lurking around the forums for some time I thought I would try to build something unique but just haven't found the host that I want for my own complete first attempt at a full build so I was looking at some hosts and asking Jayrob and DTR some questions about some builds and DTR showed me this host and the rest was history.

It was a full kit and I had very little to assemble. Just solder 1 wire lol. Here is my Sky-Ray SR5 Host Kit with 2W 445nm Copper Blue Laser Module W/X-Drive & 405-G-2 Glass Lens. I don't have an LPM but the beam is pretty impressive. Note that I made a hand made lanyard from 405 and 445 nm paracord .

Think about how vague that question is. Your going to have to be more specific, maybe even include pictures.

Nvm I got it! I spent all day trying to find a lab open to solder it together. Anyone know why the beam is ovular rather than circular?
