Hi Scott,

Amateur telescope mirrors don't get any better than one from Carl Zambuto, or Mark Suchting. The "contrast" is the thing and it's next level.

You won't get a new mirror from Mark these days, but 2nd hand ones do surface from time to time on the classifieds, or through clubs and often at very good prices. Carl is retiring in 12 to 18 mths and already has a huge back log and is very much limiting the orders he takes, although I think he is still taking orders from Peter Read at the moment.

Cheers
John B
