Yep, S&S Optica. Cathy is the greatest. I just can't keep from walking in there occasionally....bought both my scopes there and absolutely love their customer service. Really wish they'd upgrade their online site though. It'd be nice if people could order online from them; but I guess to them, the "hands on" customer service means a lot. I've ordered eyepieces and bits from other online sources (and some I've bought from S&S), but for ANY major purchase--I'm going to S&S because I want to KEEP my Brick and Morter Store going.....

I haven't been there yet but that picture of Anacortes just makes me want to go there and buy something from them even more

yeah I hated to see parks/scope city go,,,,,

I had a parks 10" f/5 ota. it was a work of art! I bought it for $500 from a nice fellow in hollywood,,, took it home a thousand miles away and kept it for 6 years then in turn sold and delivered it to another nice fellow in Long beach,,

*sigh* wish I kept it now,,,,

I went there years ago when it was an astronomy store, and the customer service was horrible.

It's still an astronomy store, and my experience is that Anacortes' service is excellent.
