Abstract
In the performance of tasks of the high-resolving optical system manufacturing, the significant funds are required. This fact can be a reason limiting further development of astronomical research. The aim of this paper is demonstrated of the ways to reduce the fabrication cost of astronomical instrument mirrors.
