No I am not making the mirror. The problem is the tube. With the higher focal length the longer the tube needs to be. In my area I have not been able ti find a tube over 4' in length. So I was considering going with a 10" F4.5. But I was unsure what this would do the the capabilities of the scope. I plan on observing planets, moon and probably won't do photography although I would like this capability.
