Am I going barmy? I was looking at some of these bargains yesterday, but the prices seem to have gone up over night? The C9.25 on the AVX was £1449 yesterday - was there an error, or has my mind finally gone?

Well as long it isn't just me... It did seem like a good bargain.  But I probably couldn't really afford it anyway!  😁

Sorry chaps, we have adjusted a handful of prices.

In our defence there is still a £600 saving on the Celestron C11 AVX, which is rather generous, and we are including a FREE Lynx Astro Silicone power cable with any telescope purchased in the sale (worth £24) :smile: 

HTH, 

Steve

Yes :) I looked at the 9.25 Evo, at 1699, discussed with Financial Secretary to the Treasury last night, got the go-ahead, looked in this am and well ! surprised  1789 :(

I thought by the 28th was a bit of a rush anyway to make a decision of that magnitude !!!

Project now shelved.

It is Celestron's sale, we are simply passing on the savings. Celestron have set the end date. 

The Celestron Evolution 9.25 is priced at £1,789. That is a saving of £310 (plus a free Silicone power cable worth £24). 

Similarly you can save £250 off the Celestron Evolution 8 and you still get the free cable. 

The savings on the SE and SLT series are not as impressive because they were already heavily discounted prior to the sale. But every little helps :smile:

Yes but it was £1699 ! which was an even bigger saving !! of let me see errr * ,,,   I admit today I  missed the offer of the cable, it must have been because of the tears in my eye :D

so, now you can tell Celestron what I thought of the date-line, b-boom :) 

* I did jest to the Chief Secretary last night that if I got both the 8 and the 9.25 (I was in two minds) that would be an even more humungous saving, it can be best described as a 'withering' look :(

I am struggling to tell if you seriously want to buy one at £1,699 or are simply having fun tweaking our tail... :unsure:

If you genuinely want to buy one then I will make amends for our pricing error by PMing you tonight a discount voucher that will change the price to £1,699. 

Will that help?

Probably best if I answer this in-line :-

I am struggling to tell  sorry  if you seriously want to buy one at £1,699 or are simply having fun tweaking our tail... :unsure:In my last post I was having fun, in my first post I was sympathising with the other posters and expressing frustration. I did however realise all the time that the deadline was  Celestron's  Me tweak you tail ? would I dare :)

If you genuinely want to buy one I did genuinely last night then I will make amends for our pricing error by PMing you tonight a discount voucher that will change the price to £1,699. very kind/good of you thank you but,

Will that help?  but, today when we saw the price change we decided we would persue another path. So sorry, we have changed our minds now.

Sorry I confused you

You had me worried for a moment having just bought the surplus stock Celestron Evolution 8" HD with Starsense from you last week, and I have not opened the box yet!  It's the non HD ones in the clearance then I expect.

Yes - the HD ones aren't being included in the current sale only the non-HD versions and only the 8" and 9.25" versions.
