Check out this link on spherical mirror warping: http://tempest.idle.com/~markv/spherical.html I believe this is what Joe was referring to. This is a good idea in that a relatively easy to make spherical mirror is warped into a paraboloid. However I have wondered if the warping is uneven and causes astigmatism.
