The 17.5" x 1.6" primary is pyrex and has been reworked by Steve Swayze. Coatings were done by Spectrum and are in very good shape. The 3.1" secondary is a Galaxy. Included are a white Catseye Hotspot, Astrosystems Dew Guard, and velcro attached to at the primary's COG for a cable sling. As shown in the pictures there is a scratch on the primary slightly less than an inch long. When Mr. Swayze was asked by the original owner if the scratch should be ground out he was advised to leave it alone as it is such a small percentage of the surface area. There is also a small nick on the edge of the primary but it's intrusion into the mirror is coincident with the bevel. The mirrors will be packaged according to the practice detailed by Mike Lockwood on his web site.
