11163Re: [delmarvastargazers] Mirror coating machine
- Oct 24, 2013This would/could be a welcome addition to any amateur astronomy organization.However, coating mirrors is not for the amateur. These machines require a "home" with special power and other utilities.We do not have such a dedicated place to my knowledge. Therefore, I propose we pass on this opportunity.Thanks for the heads up...if other folks have diff opinions please speak up with your suggestions.

On Cloudy Nights under ATM parts & such there is a mirror-coating machine up for grabs at $3500 negotiable, Is this something the club should consider investing in? Seems like we could coat 20 mirrors or less & break even not counting the cost of supplies, then we coat our own mirrors very cheaply. Discuss it amongst yourselves.
