I was looking at several vendors online this morning, some estimated in stock times were up to 6 months. Is it that scopes are being delivered to retailers but the backlog of orders is such that inventories never make it to “in stock” status or is it that overseas production has been reduced to nothing. What do you think is really going on?

If you are impatient, you could use the second hand market (both my scopes, mount, eyepieces were bought used)

It's been a topic of discussion for quite some time. The Covid virus effected production in China more than their government let on. Combined with increased demand due to so many laid off workers with time on their hands and you have the perfect storm for the back order from hell. Patience is a virtue I am told...
