I bought this mirror recently from the excellent Astromarter Ross Workman, who described the mirror (and I quote):
"This mirror is a good one. Comes from a ~1980 Meade 826. It was made during Meade's early newtonian telescope days. This mirror is as good as the Meade Research Grade mirrors and I'd even put it up against a Royce mirror. The coatings, I believe, are original and will need to be replaced sometime in the near future if you wanted to realize the full potential of this mirror. Otherwise, they are quite servicable."
I have looked at the coating, and I would not bother recoating if I were keeping it - I can see nothing wrong with the coating.
If you're looking for a mirror with a fine figure for much less than what you would pay for a premium mirror, this is it. The Meade 826's have a well-known reputation for having excellent optics. Selling because I found an f/5 (I was looking for an f/4.5) after purchasing this f/6. I have the Meade mirror cell - I'd rather keep the cell, but if you need it, it's available with the mirror for $40.
