I have many ?'s

1-What does f/6 for example mean and in what units are they measured.

2-What do you reccomend size wise for seeing lots of deep space object. Mirror-satigga and focal length and secondary mirror size.

3-How do you grind the primary mirror.

4-Can you make homade eyepieces or should you by them.

5-Does the secondary mirror size matter.

6-How long should the tube be.

Thanks for your help and any additional info would be greatly appreciated expetially on grinding mirrors. If you have more help to give feel free to e-mail it to me. Also if you have any old mirrors 12"+ for sale contact me at Once again thanks.
