    Default Is there any good telescope and bino shops in Malaysia?



    Hi, I just registered for this forums.I have so many questions to ask.

    I am planning to get a binoculars since end of this year I'll be going camping for a month. So I'll be away from all the city lights and have dark skies for a month and so

    I have a Orion XT8i telescope but I notice it is not very portable to bring along with me.

    Any one can suggest me a good and reliable binocular dealer in Malaysia?

    Thank you in advance and regards,

    Nigel.

    Most camera shops also carry binoculars. Just buy a good brand 7x50mm, or 10x50mm. Nikon would be good. Do not buy a roof prism binocular, or one with a red coated lens.

    Hi Nigel,
    I am a real newbie to this forum and new to astronomy as well. Just wanted to find out if you managed to buy that binoculars you were looking for.
    Could you give me in name of the shop and the address. ?
