Where can I get my 8" mirror re-aluminized? I live in a northern suburb of St. Paul in Minnesota. What is a reasonable fee for aluminizing and overcoating these days? (I made the mirror about thirty years ago, and would like to get it in shape for Mars this summer.)

Also, the concrete-form tube I originally made the telescope with needs replacing. What are some good options besides another concrete-form tube?
