Your starting point must be [url=http://www.atmpage.org/contrib/Poulson/faq/]The ATM FAQ[/url]

The best place, IMO, for mirror blanks and ATM supplies in the UK is [url=http://www.galvoptics.fsnet.co.uk/telescope.htm]Galvoptics[/url]. I have used them for a couple of decades and have always had a good service.
