What If........?

Postby Ryohei » 25 Jul 2012, 09:58

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a specialist retailer of astronomical equipment etc anywhere in Scotland? I've had a look online and I can't see one. I exclude places like Jessops, which are rather more generalist - they might sell telescopes and/or binoculars, but it's not their main "thing". I was going to say, their main focus, but that's a rubbish pun.

Now...if the answer to my question is "No", what if somebody opened one? In Fife, for example. Hypothetically speaking (for the moment), might it be the sort of business that could actually work?

Or is it just pie in the sky?

I'd be interested in your views. Strictly hypothetical views, that is.

Hi Alan

The Answer believe or not ! Is actually no.

There are no specialist astronomy shops in Scotland ?

I have bought nearly all my gear over the past 8 years online or traded with colleagues or from

UK Astro Buy n Sell.
