What Should I Build Now?

I have a bit of a problem. I wanted to build a reflective telescope, and started to gather usefull items like a 6" to 10" mirror, and various eyepieces. Now that I have tested a 6" $4,000.00 mirror that was scrapped by Micron(it had a faint spec on the outer edge)and was given to me, I discovered the focal length to be about 3". This was quite dissapointing to say the least. What should I do with it now? I still need a mirror. Can anyone use this that might wont to trade, or is there anyone who knows of a fun project that I could build that will use this 6" concave mirror with a 3" focal length.
