I throw my hat in the ring as well. Interesting read.

Living in AZ for the past 14 years, I have been to the Mirror Lab a few times. Your story has added to to the enjoyment of my past visits. Thank you.

For the amateur telescope owning crowd, what might the strehl ratio be for the 8.4 meter mirror when it was completed, and what might a Milles-Lacroix graph look like for this mirror?
