If you don't get anywhere in ireland, I would recommend (strongly) that you buy online. there are several reputable suppliers in Britian and the rest of Europe - try telescopeshop.de

happy hunting

You could also try www.scopesandspace.ie I bought a Canon T-Ring and an adaptor last Monday night from their website and hey presto it arrived in this morning's post.

I compared their prices against some of the UK "shops" and the prices are competitive, they are doing mostly Celestron but also have some Orion EP's listed as well.

An excellent website, very easy to get around.

It's cheaper here:

www.astroshop.eu/celestron-luminos-1-25-7mm-eyepiece/p,24884

With €15 shipping you still save.

Hi lunartic I think you might check your maths as I have them working out at the same price for a Luminos 7mm which your link refers to and also using your shipping price.

Astro shop at €119 plus €15 shipping, total €134 www.astroshop.eu/celestron-luminos-1-25-7mm-eyepiece/p,24884

Scopes and Space €129 plus €5 shipping €134 www.scopesandspace.ie/astronomy-accessor...epeices/price_asc/10

The bits I bought worked out way cheaper from Scopes and Space in comparsion to Astro Shop

Scopes and Space T2 Ring. Canon EOS €20 www.scopesandspace.ie/products/details/t-ring-canon/106

Euroshop T2 Ring Canon EOS €19.90 www.astroshop.eu/camera-mounted-t-adapto...ing-canon-eos/p,2416

Scopes and Space T-Ring Adapter €29 www.scopesandspace.ie/products/details/t-ring-canon/106

Euroshop Celestron T-Ring Adapter €45 www.astroshop.eu/t-adaptors/celestron-t-...8-9-25-11-14/p,21903

Plus, if you go to,the Scopes and Space shop directly you'll end up,saving on shipping :rock:

The orignal poster said he was new to astronomy and looking to extend his eyepiece collection. Now that Luminos would be a nice addition but not the most economic addition.

Most shops will have eyepiece sets in the €100-€200 range. Price depends on the number of eyepieces, what focal lengths, what filters are included, how nice the case is etc. Most of the eyepieces will be a standard plossl design so there won't be much of a quality/performance difference between manufacturers.

That's what I'd advise looking at first anyway. The Irish dealers mentioned here both do sets from various manufacturers.

Hi Pat

Scope and Space are quoting €15 for shipping, add that to the €129 and it comes to €144.

I agree with you Albert, a set would be the best option, giving a good variety of eyepieces.

Hi Paul I am sorry if I seem to be labouring my point, however I was charged €5 shipping for the items I bought from Scopes and Space.

Hi Pat

I was going by the website, when you add the eyepiece to the shopping basket it gives a shipping cost of €15, if they only charged €5, then all the better, a saving of a tenner.
