Has anyone used a mirror lens with their Nikon body?

I am curious whether anyone on the forum has tried or owns a mirror lens (like the Pro-Optic 500mm f6.3 or similar). These lenses are inexpensive and offer an incredible telephoto reach (albeit at the expense of being a slow lens), and are kind of interesting to me. I'd like to see a few images taken with one of these, if possible, and a report from users on their experience with this type of lens. I know this is not the lens forum, but I want Nikon DX users to report, as I am not particularly interested in any other brand body or Nikon FX users (but will not discount those users, either, if they have something relevant to offer). I'd like to know if they have any sort of AF, how sharp (or distorted) the images are, etc.
Thank you!
BTW, I have the D90.
