Hmm, but as with all midranged mirror market, it won't be as good as the expensive one right? I don't want to bet my money on any mirror since I'm gonna bring the mirror overseas, sending them back and forth would cost the same as expensive mirror and I don't have the money for that.

Since no body has any exerience with UO mirror, how about the Discover-Telescopes one ?

and is 88% and 96% coating really makes the difference ? Some mirror maker use the enhanced one, is it really worth the money ?
What about being Lime glass and pyrex ?
I have read lot's of readings about them but none seems help me to decide.
Btw, the telescope will primarily be used in Indonesia. Tropical, so the average temprature through out the year (at my town) is 31-35 celcius and at night time it only falls to average 25-30.

Thanks in advance for the recomendation !
