Paper Abstract

A 0.9 m diameter f/1.8 paraboloidal mirror of moderate quality (approximately 2 arcmin) has been produced by spinning an epoxy- coated spherical substrate. This mirror has been used to build a prototype flux collector for stellar seismology. The objective is to produce 2 m mirrors for this application.
