I am trying to figure out what to do with my parks 12"mirror its signed Clemente it needs a redcoat i had it coated once before from an optical company i worked for its siting in my apartment gathering dust i cant afford a mount if anyone knows of a mount that's near free im looking for an old cave or ds 16 equatorial, if i sell it i wont be able to rafford to replace unless i get a real good job i think the mirror goes for around 1500 i bought it for much less if anybody can give me a good idea of what its worth or if you might be interested send me an email @ rueck.joseph3@gmail.com this mirror is a planet killer i still swear i saw the comet that slammed Jupiter b4 it was discovered i thought it was an edge on galaxy near Jupiter i bought the mirror from scope city back in the late 80s

Build a simple Dobsonian tube and mount for it. That will, if done right, prove better methinks than an old timey GEM.
