View Full Version here: : burgess TMB planetary eyepieces

Does anyone know if there is a vendor in Aus who sells the Burgess TMB planetary eyepieces or would I have to order overseas? According to the Burgess web site there should be an "SCS Astro" company in Australia but can only find one for the UK.

Ta in advance

AFAIK there is no burgess dealer in Australia, but you can order directly through Burgess. I'm surprised an Australian outfit hasn't approached Burgess given the apparent popularity of the planetary eyepiece series. The upcoming Paragon series is getting excellent reviews too.

Thanks for the info fellas. Look forward to the review. I'm looking at getting a 9mm , mainly for dso's. Don't need a superwide fov: 60deg is ample for me; i know this must sound odd but I don't realy care for too wide a fov (there's always one isn't there!):screwy::)
