When I heard Yuri was thinking of making the 200 again about two years ago, I got on a list of interest. Yuri told me I was the first on the list. I made a down payment in June of last year. The estimate was December but I think Yuri is getting close to finishing the first one now. Just a few days ago he had the first lens set together with a Strehl of .953. He is going to work on it some more to get the Strehl higher. I don't know if everything else is ready to go and how long it will take to finish off the lens but I feel my wait will be over soon.
I can't wait for you to get your TEC 200 Kent, and tell us all about it. I waited three years for my 32". It was killing me by the end, but the best things in life are worth waiting for.
