Stevens Optical is pleased to announce that it has three brand new 8" f/6 premium mirrors for sale for $575.00 each.

The mirrors are extremely smooth optically, have a balanced, crisp edge and smooth figure over the whole surface from center to edge. These mirrors come with a guarantee to deliver 50x per inch of aperture given appropriate conditions in the atmosphere. They are finely crafted mirrors, giving tack sharp focus, with high contrast images and are perfect for the planetary observer who wants the benefits of a smaller diagonal mirror. Coatings are standard protected aluminum by Spectrum Coating.

One owner of an 8” f/5.6 Stevens Optical mirror recently took his mirror to 71x/inch and 102x/inch of aperture when viewing Saturn and Jupiter. You can find reviews of Stevens Optical mirorrs in the Vendors forum on CN and in various forums on Astromart.

I worked for Carl Zambuto of Zambuto Optical for three years, learning the craft of mirror making and becoming the small mirror specialist for ZOC. As the small mirror specialist, I made mirrors from 8" through 12.5" to Zambuto specifications. These 8" mirrors are made to the same exacting tolerances.

For a sample of the documentation of one of these mirrors, please visit http://www.stevensoptical.com/.

Clear Skies,

Ed Stevens
