Astro dealers.


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there was any point on having a section on your experiences ( good or bad ) with dealers. Who would you recommend? Have you had any problems, non delivery / no response to queries, goods not as described.?

I see that a few other forums have similiar features, as some off our imagers who use the UKAI site know.

Although I heard their boss is a bit of a git.

A git? I don't believe it.

From the dealers point, I suppose they should be able to post about good / bad customers.

Stockport bino and telescope are very good i found the repair service is Excellent rick is very good with most repairs and a top man.

Yes i have had dealing with Stockport Bino and Telescopes in the past and have found them an excellent shop and staff no box shifters there.

Hi All,

Great to deal with - friendly advice etc.

Scopenskies (Maria) / Sherwoods (Matt) / Scopestuff (Jim) / Altair Astro (Nick) / Venture scope (Ninian) / Modern Astronomy (bern) / OVL

Not so good to deal with - Poor service / not happy to advise.

SCS Astro (if only Orion USA knew!!).

Green Witch (funny one to deal with.. never call you back!)

David Hinds comes somewhere in the middle!!!

Just tried Beacon Hill Telescopes to see if they could sort out a counter weight for my Tal (not available on its own). Barry is bending over backwards to sort this out cheaply and couldn't have been more helpful. Have had a good look at there site. Looks like high quality kit at increadibly reasonable prices. Worth a look for anyone after a robust, non goto mount or a newtonian.

Bern at modern astronomy, patience and serious expertise.
