Abstract
I have spoken several times, in different locations, about the Multiple Mirror Telescope and what it is. This is the last time, at least at SPIE. In this engineering symposium it would be appropriate to discuss some of the lessons that we have learned from the project. This will include both positive and negative lessons along with some illustrations which will help you understand why I consider them something we have learned. The comments made here are to be interpreted as mine and will be primarily related to the optical fabrication. Others on the project may view some of these problems in a different light!
