Quote:I would say the cooling will be much better then somewhat. The open tube should allow a much more efficient cooling time when combined with the Quartz optics.
None of my kit is part of a two year pay to be part of beta test, that still isn't close to ending.

Quote:I suspect that while the ads may be out in China and Europe, it is doubtful that any actual scopes are available there yet since the first production run only started last week, The China ad shows a quantity of zero sold and the European ad says "Ask for delivery time." That doesn't sound like the scope is actually available in either place.
