The blank for the new secondary has now been manufactured, and delivered to the polisher for evaluation. Once we are sure that the blank meets specifications, figuring and polishing will begin.

We expect that to take about 3 months, give or take a few weeks either way.

While we wait for the new secondary, we will be completing work on the guider assembly, and updating/adding various features and systems so that we will be ready to go when the new secondary arrives.
