Progress on second 33" mirror.

Just finished a 12 1/2" f4.14 mirror (well ready for final star testing). The second of my 33"ers, this one a f3.95 is going through corrective figuring to
correct a "rolled edge" defect. Did manage to get the inside 30" to an acceptable level of performance, but need to do better.All my work is done by hand, no machinery of any kind, (except did do the edge bevel with a belt sander).
