I faxed them a few days ago and they told me the thickness of the 10" was 1.6". They have a parabolic made of Pyrex and was told that one might be thinner. They haven't included a price for that mirror. The glass mirror retails at $200 US. I haven't really seen of heard of anyone that uses the Antares mirrors. However, I have seen plenty of their refractors lens cells used. People seem to like those.
Actually, most of the comments concerning their accessories were positive. Thanks for the input.
