ButNow, Prices Go Up In January

If you didn't get that telescope you wanted for Christmas, be sure to buy before early January. Either locally at the Bishop Gift Shop or on line at your favorite retailer,

Whoops, hit the post button too soon. Whopping price increases are coming next month as inflation comes to our little corner of the economy.

Hi Joe. The old fashioned way. You have to go to their gift shop which is inside the Museum main entrance. If you are going to the gift shop you don't need to pay any admission fee. They will sell you the telescope right there and off you go. They do carry a few nice models under $500. I'm told they sold out of their 6" Dobs last week. The best sellers are their Starsense Explorer models.

Joe, that's something you would have to buy on line from an internet dealer. I always recommend High Point or B&H Photo. That's a long lead time Joe. You might wait as long as a year to get one, and only then if you place your order and get in line.
