One of those projects started but not finished. The following parts are available for a 6" telescope

Mirror and tool: The mirror is a 1.5" f-7. It is not complete. It is polished but not figured. There is a large depression in the center of the mirror, and the edge is slightly turned down. You can either figure the mirror or go back to fine grinding. the non-polished side is chipped. No affect on the mirror surface.

A coating from Newport Glass Works in California is included (where I purchased the kit)

Grits: 220 carborundum, Aluminum Oxide: 35, 25, 15, 9 and 5 micron.

Cerium Oxide: 16oz

Gugolz 64 pitch. Enough to make one or two pitch laps

Mirror Cell Holder

Spider for secondary diagonal. Have the diagonal mirror, but presently can't find it.

2" focuser, with 1.25" adapter.

Parts for a wood Dobsonian Stand, and most of the hardware (came from a Hardin Optical 6" Dob).

This is a nice project for someone willing to make a 6" reflector.

Prefer to sell as one unit. Will consider splitting up.
