Thanks to all who replied to my previous query.

I kept on polishing, 1/3 W, MOT. This is quite a bit longer stroke and wider W than i was using before. After nearly 4 hours (about how long i spent polishing In the problem) it looks much better!!

I have nice straight bands across most of the mirror, and a much narrower turned up edge. There is still a central depression, but its now much less pronounced.

Anyhow, thanks again all.
