    Telescope house for me too, got my LX90, on special offer from there. Fab after sales service, and next day delivery. Cant recommend anyone higher!!.. Have also used Sherwoods to buy accessories, also good service. First light optics do tend to have keen prices, also check Ian King Imaging....Also good prices. And also Modern Astronomy, again good prices, though limited scope choice.

    Hi,

    You could look at the "365 Astronomy" website, where there is a wealth of info. on the equipment they stock.
    I have purchased various"stuff" from Zoltan the proprietor and found him to be very reliable and extremely helpful.
    Also the Company is available for calling right upto 9pm in the evenings.
