Hi Rick,
I guess I have to do more research before I get an understanding.
I hate doing things just because!! I have to know "why" before I leap in.
There is a heap of conflicting information out there and a lot of it requires some heavy math.
One of your earlier posts to someone mentioned drawing out the scope to check on diagonals etc. Is there any where that describes this process in detail?
I am going to have to swallow my pride and grind a conventional mirror to start with, "rats!!" so I want it to be perfect. I'm still trying to find someone reasonably local who has done it before.
