Wow!  I must admit that looks nice.  WO has quite a good reputation and it is always nice to see an expanding product line.  I didn't see any pricing - maybe too early to have that hammered out?  If I were in the market for this size scope, I would have to seriously consider this.

Nice looking.

Hope it will perform as expected from William Optics...

Starts at $1998.  Available with red, gold or space gray accents. Guidescope an option.

Very nice. And they quote a 0.95+ Strehl.

Zygo test available at additional cost.

A little out of my range, but looks like a nicely made scope.

It looks like it is priced at $2000

If someone is looking for a 90mm with Chinese optics and wants it "right now", TS has their 90mm F6 triplet using FPL 55 for around $1,450 USD plus shipping to the US.

 

HERE is a link.
