A wild idea...has anybody ever consider using a PVC pipe 10"(Diam.) to build a 8"newt???? Should i just trash it??? It seems that the plastic could be deficient due to thermal problems....but compared to some fiberglass scopes that i've seen for sale the differences should not be that much......any thoughts on this????
