I'm thinking of making my first newtonian, probably a 10", maybe a 12". Is anyone familiar with BVC glass? It's available from ASM Products. It cools faster than pyrex, is lighter, and not as hard. And it can be purchased pre-ground to your requested f-ratio. Anyone have opinions? I'll have help from a well-seasoned friend. Thanks, Mark
