FOR OPTICS AND TELESCOPE MIRRORS
telescope mirror coating
We have coated many 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 more than half our work has been re-coating old telescope mirrors.
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.
