Intes no longer making scopes?

According to Markus Ludes, Intes is no longer making telescopes. I suspect the Military market is more lucrative, as in the US. Too bad, though; they made reliably very good optics. On the other hand, it seems the Mak market has become saturated. With AP and now TMB at the high end, and Intes-Micro, Ylena, and STF all making quality products similar to each other, and with the Chinese hit or miss QA getting better--

"--Granted, that's a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be ... limited to our own galaxy."
