Where to buy Baader NB in Australia?

Hello all
Does anyone know of an Australian retailer that sells Baader 36mm narrowband filters? I can get them from TS in Germany for 330 Euros but would rather buy local. And 36 Euros for delivery is a bit of a rip off.
Thank you
Jeremy

Don't forget that TS take 19% off their listed price for sales outside the EU.

I did a lot of searching when I needed to buy an oiii baader filter and TS is the cheapest around, you have to subtract the tax. Sign up with your details and the prices will adjust.

Thank you for the replies. 330 Euros is the outside EU price so about $490 AUD plus delivery. It is the 36 Euro ($53 AUD) delivery that stings some....
Might have to buy some other things just to make the delivery price seem reasonable
Cheers
Jeremy

Maybe we need to organise regular IIS group buys from TS to share the postage?

Did you email Baader directly for shipping cost?
At least within Germany, their shipping is cheaper than TS's.

Here's their English product list incl. 19% VAT.
At the bottom is their email address.

I checked whether it would be even possible let alone cheaper than TS if I order and forward it to you.
But due to the necessary insurance of more than 50 - which isn't available for lighter parcels, my DHL option for <5kg would cost 43.99, see screenshot.

Hello Silv
Thank you for taking the time to look into that.
I have family in the UK so might end up getting it sent there and then forwarding it to Oz, although with the faff around factor it is probably better just to swallow the cost and get it directly posted here.
Thanks again
Jeremy

Baader NB in Australia

Extravision (based at Murrarie) in Brisbane are the distributors for Baader in Australia. They will be able to give you a price, but will refer you to one of the local suppliers as they will not compete with their retailers. I picked up some NB filters last week and they were considerably cheaper through a local retailer compared to the wholesaler. The problem is most retailers locally don't hold the filters on hand.
