Mirror wavefront error < 1/15th wave PV across 4 diameters

Polish, diffraction edge, figure of revolution excellent; smoothness fine.
	
Arithmetic wavefront error = 1 / 26.4 wave at zone 3 (average 4 diameters)

Results for individual diameters, 4 sets of readings each diameter:
	Readings Diam-1: 1 / 26.3 lambda, Max Trans Aberration=0.27
	Readings Diam-2: 1 / 25.5 lambda, Max Trans Aberration=0.30
	Readings Diam-3: 1 / 15.6 lambda, Max Trans Aberration=0.71
	Readings Diam-4: 1 / 16.5 lambda, Max Trans Aberration=0.70
