Here's a way to make a low cost 8" F6 Dob using the primary+cell,
secondary+holder, focuser, finderscope+bracket, and eyepiece from a
Celestron Star Hopper. The primary has a chip at its edge about 1.4" X 0.5" (less than 2% of surface area) but otherwise has a smooth figure with about 1/5 wave over-correction at the wavefront. There is also a very narrow turned edge that can be masked off leaving a 7.75 diameter clear aperture. Once masked off, this mirror should do well - there are a lot of 1/2 wave mirrors out there from scopes in this price range. Buy it all for $100 + shipping. Thanks - Tom
