Great finder, but not for planitary

By

Mirror not a very good parabola. Even with a 20mm eyepiece, going in and out of focus shows spherical abberation, under corrected, 1/2 wave maybe? Saw no features on jupiter. Also a large turned down edge on last 0.4mm of outside, it can be seen without any eyepiece. I am using it as a finder of a 17.5" dob, works find at 17x. I will mask outter edge, down from F/4.5 to F/5.0. Rest of scope worked fine, but the two suplied Huygens type eyepieces are usless on F4.5 scopes, I use a 20mm Erfle.
