Skywatcher 5 element ED150 news?

Anyone know when we may expect to see the new ED150 apo from skywatcher. It's on there website now http://www.skywatcher.com/swtinc/pro...1=1&class2=110

I also saw they were brining out an FSQ equivalent a 100ED f5 Petzval with carbon-fibre tube but this is not on website yet.

I think they need to work on their web pages and information. They list this scope as an achromat...then go on to talk about:

"The 5-element ED120 and 5-element ED150 refractors are similar to the triplet ED120 and triplet ED150 refractors"

...errrr that's a doublet ED120 and so on...unless they plan on bringing out triplets in a petzval design.

I think they just mucked it all up in delivery due to their haste. That said I look forward to their products!
