Hey again,

I live about 15 minutes south of Los Angeles. Yep, clear skies is one of the things we dont get much of around here. Although, a few trips to the mountains is definitely in the works soon.

I am planning on making my next mirror, and have been looking around at the prices for both plate glass, and pyrex blanks. It will probably be a 10" f/5 mirror, but then that also depends on how good I can grind it for my first one. I realize I amy end up a little faster or slower.

Thanks for the invite to the San Diego site. I may stop by sometime soon, but, it is about a 1 hr. 45 min drive from here. Maybe when the weather cools off in the fall.

Jack McQuaide
