telescope mirror coating


We coat amateur telescope mirrors for John Dobson of the Sidewalk Astronomers and for the Telescope Makers Workshop at the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland. We do some commercial coating now and then. Our coating is aluminum with silicon monoxide over-coating.  In the last year about half our work has been re-coating old telescope mirrors. We have a program with plans and instructions for building a telescope. The program includes mirror testing methods, basic optics and wave theory of optics. The program is supplied on a CD disk which can be browsed with the Safari Browser, the Microsoft Internet Explorer, the Firefox Browser or any general purpose browser. Telescope making program, including mailing, $5.
