Our 1.6m telescope mirror installed at the KMTNet-SSO site has been successfully recoated on February 2017, by using an aluminum coating chamber (Top photo) of the UK Schmidt telescope. Reflectivity of the mirror surface increased again up to ~88%. After attaching the mirror to the telescope (Bottom photo) and aligning the optics, we obtained CCD images with very good quality.
