I don’t believe that Mark Suchting has made mirrors for quite some time but the two mirror makers mentioned are considered to be the go-to for high quality dob mirrors.

The cheaper end of the market has made leaps and bounds in recent years in how repeatable better quality cheap mirrors are made. Both Mike Lockwood and Carl Zambuto talk about it being more than just the optical figure but also the quality of the finish. You can have a really well figured mass produced mirror with a not so great finish and that’ll I torusce considerably amounts of contrast killing scatter.
