Horizon Astronomy was created by Paul-Byrne

Hi all

I came across this website this evening: 

www.horizonastronomy.ie/

This is new to me, has anyone had any dealings with them or know anything about them?

Paul

New to me as well.  I see some familiar faces have likes their FB page.

The company seems to have been set up in August last year.

Thanks for that Paul.

I checked it out there...a nice website alright. There is a registererd adress on the website, but I wonder if it's set up like KTEC. Based on the 'About Us' page I don't think so because it says it is an 'Online Astronomy Store'.

Still, nice to have another Irish company to deal with.

Clear skies,

Darren.

I took a punt on them this morning and ordered a scope cover.
I'll let you know how it turns out.

Do Michael, as I'm in the market for an eyepiece between 12-19mm.

Clear skies, 
Darren.

I collected the scope cover from the shop this morning. They are based in Ballymount so are very handy to get to from Dundrum.

I didn't get to meet the owner Andreas as he was away at a trade fair. The cover is a Telescope Service brand and seems to be very good quality - I suppose I will have to wait for some rain to test that :-).

I saw in another post that Aubrey was wondering when we will get some good weather again. I have some bad news - there was a 10 inch Newtonian (with a solar filter) waiting for collection :-).

Regards,

Michael.

Hello Michael. 

Ha! Ha!
Hold off on collecting that 10" Dob. 
We might have clear skies tonight Wednesday. 

Sadly I'm out listening to music in Greystones. 
But it's my favourite music: classical. 

CLear skies from Aubrey.
