For those who are disappointed for the current long wait time of TEC scopes, here is a very old post by Roland, somewhat related to this subject.
(It is from post #10968 on the old tec-scopes Yahoo Groups).
"In the year 2001 I was in my 20th year making telescopes, accessories and apo lenses. I also had only 3-6 month wait the first 5-8 years but that changed as apos became popular. So now I am 5 years behind in my 25th year of 2006. I predict that Yuri will be an additional 1 year behind every 5 years that he is in business (extra opticians do not grow on trees and are just about impossible to train from scratch in a small company environment). In fact, I would bet that for some of his products, like his large Maks, he is already more than 1 year behind and has had to drop some due to production constraints, just like me.
So, we will see down the road. Meanwhile, don't hesitate to load up his schedule because the longer you wait, the longer you will wait."
