I'm after making an Aperture Mask for my 10" Skywatcher PDS as I had significant star flare, but at the same time I have lost some real estate which I really didn't want to do.
Are there any better clips I can buy that provide a better solution (low refraction) than the factory supplied ones? I think the design of the current ones is pretty poor.
I've also seen mentioned an option to silicone the primary mirror in place and ditch the clips which will provide the full area of the mirror. Is this a bad idea?
