Thanks binman but i think i'll go for the celestrons from america $79 so when you convert it to stirling makes for some cheap 20X80's at about 1/2 price telescopes.com seem to be the one.[:D]

Not sure if i should be naming names here but i have used [url=http://www.telescopes.com]www.telescopes.com[/url] in the past and found them a joy to deal with. I received my goods within 3 days of ordering and when i emailed them to thank them for such a swift service, the emailed me back and could not thank me enough for my kind words. They said "It is not often that we get "THANK YOU" emails, usually just complaints.......so we will pass this email (my email) around to all departments in the business".

That's why i will always use them from now on. As a customer, it is lovely for a company to take time out to "THANK YOU" for your "THANK YOU".







What about lukeskywatcher's experience at this purveyors site sounds ok to me and the site is good what do you know about the celestron's?.[:D]

You saw 20X80 Skymasters for $79 on telescopes.com?

You sure you are not confusing them with the 15X70's?

Yeah i was checking those out the other night. They (20X90) are a bit more then i planned on spending (but not much). The added 10mm apeture can only be a good thing. I'd have to read reviews by people who bought them before making my mind up.

Space Jockey i see in your signature that you have the Horizon heavy duty tripod. How is it? I'm thinking of ordering one from TelescopeHouse for my bins.

Cheers

So i did my apologies but even at about a 1r still good value, amazed that they get things here so quickly, they certainly look the up to the job so maybe i'll treat myself in a few weeks time, but 15X70's also look tasty and about 40 quid or so not bad value either i'm sure they'll batter up my bresser's and the gelerts can go in the bin. Cheers mate[:D]

The Horizon heavy duty tripod really is worth the money! It's robust and solid - I'd really recommend it.
