Where to buy an eyepiece in Exeter/East Devon?


Recommended Posts

I have braved the snows and icy conditions to travel down to East Devon for the holidays and have brought my father's 130P with me, hoping that I may get some cold, crisp clear nights with a lot less light pollution than back home.

While I am down here I would like to pick up a 6/7mm eyepiece to complement the 10/25mm eyepieces that came with the scope. However, I realise that ordering something from FLO now is probably out of the question because of missing the last post before Christmas and I wouldn't want to make unreasonable demands, so can anyone recommend somewhere I can just drop into and maybe pick one up before the weekend?

Thanks in advance for any advice,

If FLO cannot help, contacting them may be the main hiccup, then the only other I am aware of is SCS Astro:

The Astronomy Shop

1 Tone Hill. Wellington

Somerset TA21 0AU

United Kingdom

Telephone: +44 (0)1823 665510

Basically back up the M5 a bit, but not a great idea with the present weather - just thought that it is better down there then up here, less snow and ice.

Equally there may well be a shop in Exeter that sell cameras, binoculars and a few scopes and bits. Trouble is they would probably not have as wide a range as a specialist Astro shop.

Thanks for the replies Capricorn and Steve.

I am very near Exeter and if it is no trouble, I'd really appreciate dropping by. You were my first thought, but I didn't want to presume anything at this time of year and as you are an online business. If you don't mind though, I'll give you a call and arrange something with you this afternoon.

Thanks again, really appreciate the help folks,
