I am looking to build my first scope. Has anyone ever purchased mirrors from Parks Optical? I am interested in making an 8-inch newtonian but do not want to spend the time grinding the mirror. How picky should I be regarding mirror quality, and how do you determine if a mirror is good or not? Any help would be appreciated.
