For William products I would deal with Agena Astro. Manish and William have a close business relationship.

For you, I am not sure what version you got at OPT, scope only, what color and was it with or without the field flattener and bag package. Agena Astro has  a few available if you cannot wait...

 

For imaging

or for just the scope for visual

Both are gold so that is the only thing is it is the gold one that is available. Clear Skies

I called OPT to cancel and they mentioned they had Blue in stock.  So I just went with that.  Will be nice to finally get it!  Thanks for the help.
