just recieved my micro dot today! mounted it up and noticed there is a trangle shaped "tail" coming off the dot to the lower right corner of the tube, towards the illuminator(where the light source is). Is this normal, it looks like a comet flying across the tube.

Common first look. Here is a link to the FAQ on Aimpoints web site about the same issue. With an astigmatism it might not completely clear up but will get better with practice. Don't hand it to you buddy and have him look into the optic. Will see similar results. You need to look through it with both eyes open at a distant target, to get used to it, .

My suggestion is embrace it
cowitness with the small aperture peep will most likely make it a crisp dot also...... works for the "long" range / precision shots you want to take
up close for fast messy stuff it's a bigger "dot" /comma/ blob to see

The bottom line is that the absolutely exact value of pi cannot be computed.
