    Default Orion SkyLines are returning



    For anyone looking for a GSO dob bundle, Orion's Skylines are now in pre-order and will begin shipping this Friday. Prices are slightly undercutting Aperturas over at Highpoint on 10 and 12 inch models.

    A little price competition is great for buyers.

    Pre-order and get a dob cover... that's actually pretty sweet deal..
    Telescopes: 10" SkyLine Dobsonian, Celestron Nextar GT90, Meade Infinity 80
    EP: The Five Fingers of Doom: 5.5mm, 8.8mm, 14mm, 20mm, 24mm Meade 5000 UWA's
    20mm, 26mm, 32mm, 40mm Meade 4000 Plossls, 30mm, 20mm, 15mm GSO Superview, Orion Expanse, Various others.
    Binocs: 15x70 Celestron Skymaster, 10x50 Levenhuk Karma Pro, 10x42 Bushnell, 8x42 Sans & Streiffe
