polishing a 12.5 mirror

I started working on this about six months ago.

After grinding, I finally got some good pitch for a pitch lap and poured two different sizes.

Attached is a photo of the mirror after an hour of polishing.

I must say that I would never have been able to do this without encouragement from members of Astromart. Many thanks!

That is looking really good, Joe. You have probably developed arms like Popeye's.
