      Yes, but he was specifically asking about TMB Optical as shown below:

      >> Will TMB Optical continue producing large-aperture refractors
      >> like 158mm or 180mm? The largest aperture I can find in various
      >> dealers is 130mm.

      It is my understanding that TMB Optical and APM no longer have a business
      relationship. However there is nothing preventing him from ordering an APM
      with a TMB designed lens if that is what wants.
