News :

 

There were some problems with the mold before, so we have to repair the mold again. The new parts are being processed. We will first assemble several new samples to check the situation, and then provide you with the estimated time

Markus,

Thanks for the update.  This product has been an exercise in patience, perhaps for you most of all!  I'm just glad it isn't canceled altogether.  I applaud your efforts to introduce a low power, good quality, center focus porro prism binocular.  It will be very unique and a great value at $175.  I'll keep waiting patiently.  If I were you, I'd stop trying to tell people like me when it will be available, until it finally is!

Hi, I ordered and paid for these on December 1, thinking they would be available in a couple of weeks lol.gif . Little did I know that I was stepping into the midst of a multi-year process! I just read this entire thread, and I'm sorry, but I just have to ask-- any update on when these will be available? As many have pointed out, they fill an important niche, and I look very forward to the day I can sweep the Milky Way from a dark site at low power.

Hi Everybody

 

here the message of today from the manufactur :

-------------------------------------------------

Hi Markus,

We understand that you are in urgent need of these goods and we would like to deliver them to you as soon as possible. However, there are some uncertainties in the actual production and assembly. In addition, since the second half of last year to now, almost every optical factory and our corresponding suppliers of glass and metalwork parts have been very busy, and the delivery of glass and metalwork parts has been delayed, so our related assembly is also delay, too.

I have asked the factory to provide you with an estimated time for your current order. We will provide this information to you early next week. For your current order, we will work hard to deliver them, sorry for the current delay.

------------------
Best regards,

Sophia
Sales Supervisor-Sales Department

Kunming United Optics Corporation

-----------------------------------------------

 

I hope to get news soon :-(

Thank you.
