Got a nice used Meade 8" F/6 826 from around 1980. I would say the mirror is very good and seems to handle a 3mm Delite on the moon pretty darn good, but seems to lack that extra pop i have had from my Zambuto's and a RV6 i have now. I think the mirror could made better. Now i gotta wonder who should do the work? I always wanted a Mike Lockwood mirror since i have heard nothing but great things. We all know Zambuto does great work. I know there other optics makers that also do great work.
Be nice to have the mirror tested and go from there. What would you guys do? You all know i am picky and have the steady seeing that would alllow a super mirror to do it's stuff. This is a light weight OTA and my days of big scopes are over.
