just getting into mirror making Mirror warping makes sense how successful is it ? A thin mirror would have great temperature advantage A thin mirror is easy to get glass for. simple screw tensioner in the mirror center available to the viewer to bring mirror into a parabola instead of by difficult mirror figuring at manufacture and also to correct for temperature change during use seems to me to be an elegant solution. Anyone followed up on the article by William Kwlly on the web and confirmed his enthusiasum ? Comments would be appreciated to me at nipom@inreach.com Thanks
