If it wouldn't mean exile and/or divorce, I just make an offer on that TMB 105 and run off to Key West with it!
I hear ya. I've actually got an interested buyer for it. I really can't justify keeping it any more -- I have the Traveler, which is optically nearly equal. The only reason I bought the 105 was because I could binoview with it unbarlowed... now that I've bought this Garrett GT100-45 binoscope I *really* don't need the 105. I'll keep the 152 for now... but the 105 could go.
I know I've got a lot of interested parties watching this deal -- I'm flattered in a way. I've been fortunate to have been able to collect as many nice scopes as I have; but this is so far over the top...
Those of you who have asked for prices on stuff - stay tuned. I have to travel all week next week, so I won't be doing much between now and next Friday. It may get REALLY interesting here after that.
