    Maybe this is near enough for you.

    Oh, Rother Valley Optics is a great place to purchase from. They can get you most things for astronomy and at a good price. However, although the shop does have telescopes, mounts and a few cabinets with astro-gear. Its not a huge selection compared to what one can see on the website.
    If you are passing J31 of the M1 ( M57 Worksop to Sheffield road ). I would definitely take the slight 5 minute detour and pay them a visit. But, I would not recommend making a special journey over the Pennines just for that.

    Thanks, Runcorn, is convenient, I'll have to put it in my diary otherwise I will forget.

    I will be over the other side of the Pennines next week so I may be able to drop in to Rother Valley.
