Hi Bob:

I did do internet searches, and got conflicting information, hence my post to this board. I'm not sure what to believe, I'm definitely a rookie at this stuff. What do you use, how do you do it ? Or if you can recommend a trusted URL

Regarding compressed air, I did reduce output pressure of my compressor, as it is adjustable. I reduced it to 30 psig, this sound OK ? I'm scared to touch the mirror with anything (some sites have recommended soft bristle brushes, natual sponges).

Anyway, I put the mirror in last night, collimated and had my first light ever, it was quite exciting! Once I clearly understand how to clean, then the mirror will come out.
