FLO - Sending anything out @ the mo?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Ive just ordered my first AP rig from FLO via the net, I tried to call but the office is closed until the 4th Jan. Do you think they have some sort of back-room skeleton staff to take care of any orders in the meantime? Or is everyone off?

If thats the case then it will probably be at least a week before I see anything..... patience is a virtue and the stars arent about to run away so i'd better chill...lol. Easier said than done! :hello2:

I'll take a look at your order this evening (can't access FLO's admin section from my iPhone) but the chances are that it won't be dispatched til Mon 4th. Hope that is okay.

Steve and James *ARE* the skeleton staff, and they wont be back at work until the 4th January.

EDIT: Bah, beat me to it....

LOL, I placed an order too but in all seriousness, I don't go back to work until 4th Jan so why should anyone else? :hello2:

Thanks for the quick response guys :hello2:

Its cool, Im ok with waiting till the 4th (its definitely worth it) - is it overnight delivery? Just so I know when to listen out for the knock at the door.

I wasnt as lucky as you guys cos having Xmas off wasnt really an option where I used to work, always suckered into doing the Xmas shift :) apart from this year cos I was made redundant a few months ago. However, I was lucky enough to find a new job just before xmas (what a relief!!).

I dont start until the 11th, so I might have time to squeeze in a session or two if the weather is kind.

Btw: The setup i chose was the Skywatcher 150P OTA + CG5 GT mount + a few other bits. At £499 for the mount its impossible to say no! I decided to mix & match with the OTA because the focuser is much better on the 150P (crayford 2" w/ built in T-adapter) than the one on the C6-N (plain r+p). With this setup, I should have headroom in terms of weight just in case I want to add to an ST80 guidescope later on.

Phew! Ive only just realised (from reading other posts) that VAT goes back up to 17.5% on Jan 1st (lucky escape!), so its best to order NOW before its too late. From now on I will be recommending FLO to any of my friends who wish to get into astro stuff. :)
