Hands on Optics used to sell old Edmund mirror sets , 4.25" f/4.2, with matching 1.5" diag. for a very nominal price. I bought one set and made a nice little rich field that works nicely on a tripod. If you were going to make the optics instead of buying ready made I would recommend 6" f/5, as that would be easier and insofar as portability, not much bigger in reality. Also, I believe 6" f/5 optics are fairly common at reasonable prices.
