Hi folks. I've been reading these comments for several months now, but this is my first post. I'm working on my first mirror. It's 10" f/5. Have it polished and did one session of parabolizing. The figure came along surpisingly well, but while looking with a 4X loupe I found a bunch of faint scratches mostly in the outter inch and a half. Now I don't trust my lap and I'm not sure what to do. Any advice? Thanks.
