We have developed and introduced, along with one of the UK's leading coating designers, a new aluminium coating with enhanced multi layered overcoats to increase the reflectivity of telescope mirrors to almost 97% over a wide range of the visible spectrum.
All coatings are carried out in our own optical coating laboratory with state-of-the-art computer controlled coating plants. This arrangement allows us to ensure we test every single coating we apply for optimal performance.
Re-coating your mirror will not cover up any blemishes the mirror may have on it's glass surface. If we consider any blemishes we detect significant enough to detract from the mirror's performance, we will endeavour to contact you and offer advice.
If you require any help or advice about recoating, please contact us using this email link . . .
Any mirror, new or old, can have Hilux coating.
We have a downloadable Excel Spreadsheet (see the download button below) which calculates prices.
You will also find a lot of useful information in the Optics Dropdown Menu above in the Main Navigation Bar.
Normally all mirrors sent to us for re-coating are completed within 5-7 working days.
