    Hi APusers,

    I recently had an accident with my Salyut-S camera. As a result of this the mirror has been broken.

    I have been searching for a while now for a replacement mirror, but I really have difficulties finding one.

    Does anyone know a place where the buy a replacement mirror or otherwise a front surface mirror of the correct thickness...?


    With kind regards.

    Hello el pinjo , Welcome to group , Look for Kiev Camera repair shops at ukraine and usa.
    There are several kiev sellers and their services and you can send your camera to them or obtain a mirror.
    I dont know your camera but its a satellite or mir like station name , isnt it ?
    Is camera used at space ?

    Best of luck ,
    Umut

    www.araxfoto.com should be able to sell a spare mirror or even repair it for a decent price. They are trustworthy, I bought quite a lot of stuff there.

    Hi Robat,

    Thanks for the tip. I have ordered a spare mirror from ARAX. I have had very good contact with these guys.
