The regular version (with FT) is still available tho, right?

FT should have an adapter for the tube as it is 90x1 threading.
That's good to know. Scope does look good. The slender lens cell helps keep the scope look nicely proportioned with the 90mm tube. It's going to be a very compact scope! How much do you expect it to weigh?

What was it - about a month before they start to come in?

The scope looks very good. Too bad about no feathertouch option, though.
Not really such a bad loss for visual observing. As someone pointed out earlier the two speed focusers have come a long way. I have a Stellarvue SV70ED with the latest SV two speed and it is very close to The Feather Touch focusers on my SV90T Fluorite and SV102BV. Very smooth and there is no problem holding a Baader Hyperion in a 2" diagonal at zenith. Stellarvue is using the same 2" focuser in a lower priced SV90T with an FPL-53 triplet. Same price point $1495 as the "Light" also aimed at the non bino non AP crowd. For $1795 the TMB 92 Light is not such a great savings since the TMB 92SS with 3" FT focuser and extension is $1999. As for no baffles I have never heard anyone complain about the lack of baffles in a Tele Vue scope so it can be done right. TMB should have no problem if they chose to go with no baffles.
