    Default Televue Naglers (price increase?)



    any reason for the increase? is this normal? do the prices fluctuate from time to time? just curious.

    (i apologize if this was discussed at a more recent time.)

    My local shop hasn't increased their prices. Why do you think they've increased in price?

    You probably bought it during their NEAF sale when all TV were 20% off.

    The sale was over April 17th but they still honoured the prices on back ordered items. I know I got something in June/July because it was back ordered and still received the discount because I ordered during the sale.

    The person you bought it from might've had overstock, or extras from the sale or any number of reasons why you got it on sale.

    Televue ep prices went up Jan 1/12. The Ethos 13mm I bought a year ago at $550 went to $650. A hefty increase. Looking at the prices on various sites I think all their eyepieces increased in price...and not by just a little bit
