Pentax on sale at Agena

Hello,

I noticed agenaastro.com are having a Pentax sale on the SMC XW's. Currently only $10USD more than the Morpheus range. Little under $350 AUD for the 7mm which is $500+ here atm.

Yes, all US Pentax dealers have the XWs on sale from June 1-June 30.

Hello,

Thanks Don, good to know its a sale from Pentax and it is available from all vendors.

I don't suppose you know if Morpheus/Baader ep's have a similar month of sales/discounts planned?


Thanks
Steve

LOL. Only the 14mm and 12.5mm Morpheus are available in the US right now from Baader. The other focal lengths have been out of stock a long time and they will sell out instantly when they arrive. In those circumstances a sale is not only unlikely, from a marketing standpoint it would be mentally deranged to put them on sale.
I expect them to come in and instantly sell out and be unavailable another long period.
My advice to anyone wanting a Morpheus is to place a back order with your favorite dealer and wait. If you don't, you'll be unlikely to get one.

I just got in 13 of another eyepiece from another company after a long gap and sold 10 of them in the first day. The remaining 3 might last another couple days, maybe, but the vendor is already sold out.

I just heard Celestron is promising more scopes in 2022 but that they are sold out for the rest of 2021.

Pentax has had low stock and difficulty delivering. I don't know why they're on sale. Maybe they were having slow sales. That would be surprising.
