Unfortunately we have just been informed that there is a delay with delivery of the new Swarovski EL binoculars. The New generation HD EL’s were due to come into stock in the Autumn but due to production delays at the Austrian factory the date for first deliveries is now not scheduled to be until Jan 2009 at the earliest. I will keep you updated on any further progress….
We have a quantity of CelestronSLT 60 telescopes, which we are selling through at £120 a great saving over the RRP. Not only is it a great way to gain entry into the ‘GOTO‘ astro market for someone with a fancy to look up at the heavens, but it is also makes for a great budget way to ‘GOTO‘ some smaller existing astro scopes. So if you have purchased a smallish astroscope and have never gotten to grips with the setting up of the equatorial mount, now may be the time to dig it out, dust it off and give it some new legs !
Simple to align the SLT mount guides you effortlessly around the night sky without you needing any prior knowledge of what or where, no charts or maps needed. If you need to know more or want to check if your existing scope will fit on give me a call.
The Spring promotional price on NexstarSE’shas now come to an end but it doesn’t seem to have dampened demand for what is our best selling range of ‘GOTO‘ scopes. We currently have stock of the full range although we are told that some are out and in short supply at the importers and more stock is not due in from the US until mid September. So if you are in the market grab one before they are gone. We are still offering the mains power supply for free along with a set of batteries to get you up and running clear skies allowing !
This weekend will see the official launch of the Swarovski NEW EL at the RutlandBirdfair 08. With improvements to the binocular including :
Field flattener lenses (with excellent contrast right up to the image periphery)
Fluoride-containing HD (High Definition) lenses giving lifelike, high-contrast images
Maximum exit pupil distance of 20mm (giving greater viewing comfort, especially for spectacle wearers, which is unusual in a 10x binocular).
They tell me they have improved on what we think is already a stunning binocular….at £1600+ lets hope so. They are on order and we are told that stock will be here in the Autumn. For those that fancy a pair of Swarovski’s but don’t like the price we still have stock of the EL (as is now) at the very competitive £1020 (8x) & £1070(10x) and whats more were even giving away a Swarovski lens cleaning kit worth £20 while stocks last. There seems uncertainty whether Swarovski are going to keep on with the existing EL’s so it may be when they’ve gone, you’llhave to dig deep!
We have a limited stock of the popular Opticron Discovery WP binocular in 8×42 and 10×42 format which we are able offer at the special price while stocks last. The Discovery’s make an ideal choice for someone wanting a compact bodied full sized binocular with a great spec. Click the link or see the website for full spec’s and details.
They have been a while coming but prices for the Leica Televid have finally been announced and are shown on the website. Stock is sure to be very short for the first deliveries, so now is the time to get an order in if you have been waiting. First deliveries are due into the UK mid to end of September 08. Just to tempt you a little if you are not quite sure, we are offering a Leica stay on case with all Televids pre ordered, a saving of £150.00
