Astronomers look over two new mirrors at the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab in Tucson.  The one to the left with the red rim is the second 8.4 meter honeycomb glass mirror for the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT).  To the right is a smaller 6.4 meter mirror for Lockheed Corporation.  For reference the Palomar Telescope in California has a 5-meter mirror (200 inches).
