Wow, sounds like a nice deal, if the blanks do come out as you plan. I just finished my first scope, a 6" f/8, i bought the mirror. I wanted to grind the mirror for the next scope I plan on making. Was looking in the 10-12" F5 range, for that one. I would be interested getting a price for a 20" F/4 blank. I would probably wait on working the 20 incher, until I get at least one smaller mirror under my belt first.

Let me know how your mirror turns out.
