A gathering place for folks who have a common interest in finest quality Newtonian primary telescope mirrors. We are an information center for discussion from a technical and manufacturing standpoint, as well as performance in the field. The archives of this forum contain a large body of mirror-making information. We cover machines, testing, polish, figuring, anneal; essentially every subject related to the fabrication of a primary mirror. The methods used by Zambuto Optical Company are contained in this body of work.

Zambuto Optical Company is a full service custom manufacturer. We fabricate Newtonian primaries from 7" diameter through 24" diameter, typically in focal ratios from F/4 to F/"long". We have full glass processing capability from raw sheet glass through machining, anneal, and full fabrication to the finished product. We serve the domestic and international markets, both amateur and professional.
