Remember, the goal here is not simply a working mirror, but one suitable for use in a high-performance planetary telescope. 5 as at f/9, in practice this seldom occurs for a number of reasons. First, it is far easier to make a long focal length mirror. The curve is much shallower and the amount of work required to bring such a mirror to the figuring stage is proportionately reduced. The second important advantage results from the nature of the Foucault test. This elegant yet simple analytical tool is a null test for spherical mirrors.

Beyond this simple truth, there is little agreement as to the extent of the harm. Some claim that obstructions smaller than 30% the diameter of the primary mirror inflict image damage that is barely noticeable, while others maintain that any obstruction at all is unacceptable. Most experts however, agree that if the secondary mirror's minor axis is less than 15% of the diameter of the primary mirror then the harmful effects all but vanish. 2). Since a secondary mirror of some size is necessary for the telescope to even work, the best one can do is keep this obstruction, and the resulting harm, to a minimum.
