    What is a good divergence?

    just recently i found an online divergence calculator and i decided it would be cool to measure its divergence :) so after the setup i found that my basic green laser has a divergence of exactly 1.2303143398648593 mRad, or more simply 1.2 mRad :P so is this a good divergence? if not, what is...
