Day after day I check this forum to see if there is anyone posting some news or information about TMB products. This has been a very quite and pretty much inactive forum I think because people are quickly directed to the TMB forum on Yahoo. I know that the first response that I got on this forum was from Norm inviting me to join the Yahoo group. It makes me sad that when there is finally some activity on this forum it turns out to be a b.tch fest. I believe that both Norm and Niles have some legitimate opinions but be that as it may both have failed to realize something. When you censor a person even if not meant to be personal it is. Most human being have a deep need for expression and the freedom to do so. When they are denied this it feels very personal. Also if one needs or has to criticize another they should do it on a one to one basis and not publicly. When two people or however many start taking another persons inventory in a public manner that person will tend to be embraced and defensive and the real message is lost. Things like this tend to snowball escalating far beyond the initial event. I know that no one likes to be lectured as I am doing at this moment and that what I have said is self evident to most of us yet it would appear that based on recent activity a reminder is in order.

Hello Nils,I had to go back and read your post on the 102/800.It looks like a very nice scope and it does look big for a 4 inch.Have you had clear skies that you can use it and how do you like it by now?
