I can't claim there won't be any glitches encountered (please email me if you run into one), but www.EyepiecesEtc.com is now LIVE!

I am a dealer for TeleVue, Explore Scientific, Baader Planetarium, and Astro-Tech.

At first, I am starting with eyepieces, barlows, and filters from each company. I will expand into other categories as sales allow.

Sales will be primarily internet based, though people are free to come visit my location if you're in the LA area.

I can be reached at:
1-855-4EYEPIECE (439-3743)
1-310-904-6401
Don@EyepiecesEtc.com
I'll be able to take calls 9am-6pm Pacific Time starting tomorrow, Tuesday September 18, 2012,
Mon-Fri will be normal phone days, though I'll answer emails 7 days a week.

This has been a long time in coming, and I'm honored to offer products from such industry giants.

Please feel free to peruse the website and make suggestions and criticisms.

Clear skies to us all.

Where are you planning to have retail store, I mean a place to visit you? :)

Wish you the best Don! You certainly have a wealth of knowledge related to astronomy/equipment. Customers will benefit greatly as a result. You have privately helped me on several occasions....(you didn't have to do that) which I greatly appreciated. Again, congratulations and best wishes. Chuck

Stacy,
We may have communicated some time in the past. I apologize if the announcement bothered you. I trust you clicked "Unsubscribe". I'll check to make certain you're removed from the list.
