    Default Real ES EP sale :)



    There was recently a lot of commotion about very good sale on ES EPs on OpticsPlanet site. At the end it was a bust.

    But I am happy to report that I just got off the phone with Lance from ES and he confirmed that ES sale is starting on Thanksgiving and will last for about a month.

    Awesome! I was near the store today, and thought about walking in there and speaking with Lance, but in the end I just didn't do it. Glad you scored some good intel.

    In the past they had $100-$150 off for some of telescope packages and 20-30% off for EPs.

    $150 82 degree EPs were on sale for ~$100 .

    Yes, we've had a similar thread here at AF on the same topic and we are quite well aware of the recent problem that Optics Planet had. This thread is mainly regarding a real sale by Explore Scientific as relayed by ES's customer service manager, Lance McCutcheon.

    Have they revealed when the FDC100 models will be in? Doesn't look like they will make the web site stated October date.
    Moving on.......
