Paper Abstract

This paper will describe and discuss the methods which are being developed to support the large borosilicate honeycomb mirrors from the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab which are being used in the MMT 6.5 m conversion and the Large Binocular Telescope. The technique is similar to previous work carried out for the 3.5 m Phillips Lab mirror support.
