Well said. Any company that has such a demand for its products
that there is at least a 4-year wait (and it is probably much
more) for its apochromatic refractors, cannot possibly be affected
by the "competition." I don't ever want TMB Optical to be in a
position where I have to worry about delivering a telescope to my
customers years later. The only exception is our custom 12" to 20"
telescopes, because it takes ~1 1/2 years for our optical supplier
to make such a large sized triplet apochromatic refractor lens.
- Thanks, Thomas and Marcus, for clarifying, at least to me, the
quality issues for TMB lens cells going to TMB and Stellarvue. I
think I can now safely and confidently purchase the 105 that I've
been looking at. But, as things usually happen with me, now that I
have finally made up my mind, there are none to be had from any
source. When can I hope to get my hands on a TMB 105?
