I’m so upset. The more I read about my upcoming Tec 140 the more frustrated I feel. Why can’t I have nice air spaced lenses requiring precision grinding and fancy coatings that lose light at every edge ? What about thermal problems ? I like having to wait for thermal equilibrium from those insulated air spaced lenses. To top it all off I’ve seen pictures of a Tec 140 and you can’t see the front objective just the end of the tube. How do they get away with sending a scope with no front objective ?

So, has anyone received one from April’s batch (if they’re some that have been completely assembled that is).
