WOW, Nice Job! waytogo.gif

 

I was stunned when I first saw it. I had already thought it was an inspiring project, but now more so.

 

Now I have yet another 'thing to do' to put on the list. grin.gif

That's a cool post , Andy. I wonder if coating the right sized negative lens would work for a primary for a replica of Newton's reflector.
