Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to appeal to your experience and ask if anyone knows which way of fastening the main mirror would be preferable - gluing or mechanical fastening cell. The mirror is 260mm diameter, 40mm height, and 5kg weight.

If gluing - what glue to choose?
If mechanical cell - how about pinching the mirror due to thermal effects?

Thank you very much in advance,
