That's quite unfair. A month after the 140EDF was offered, I wanted to order one. Marj suggested I buy a Tak because I'd be very lucky to ever receive the 140. So I did. Roland & Marj didn't loose a sale - they sell everything they can make at a price that suits them.

Roland has said in print that there is no reason for anyone to have to wait 10 years for one of his scopes with what is available today.  We forget that most of these folks, (Roland, uncle Al, Scott losmandy, etc) are amateurs that started their businesses out of love for the hobby. Having listened and or spoken with all of them, I am pretty sure the WE are a lot more uptight about who buys what than they are!lol.gif
