I realize this may be starting a flamefest, but I am
considering a new newt --- 12" at f/5.5-f/6. I'm looking for a
premium mirror and would like to hear from people who have
first-hand experience with a mirror from one of the premium
mirror makers. What were your experiences (positive and
negative)? How would you evaluate the surface? Would you buy
from that mirror maker again?

Thanks

Chuck Taylor
