Thanks for your feedback and your enquiry. Our prices should be competitive when based on the US price + shipping to Singapore + tax and insurance if applicable. The SteadyPix is US$37 and costs about US$10 to ship. Likewise, the EQ1 drive is US$40 and shipping also about US$10. Our margins are quite reasonable I think, so the prices work out to be S$69 and S$79 respectively (regular prices are S$75 and S$85). We also take all risk of shipping in the products, provide some amount of local warranty, and ability to try before buying (for items in stock). Appreciate any further feedback, and do send an email if you would like to place any orders. Both items are in stock by the way.

Best regards !

US$10 risk-free shipping for each of those items is extremely reasonable.

Dear laurenti,

Thank you for your enquiry. This scope can be made available here, but as it is relatively large, the shipment cost will likely exceed the product cost. Budgettary price for this item is S$549. Do contact us via email if you would like to discuss further details of this item ?

Hi astrobargains,

Thanks for your prompt response. Sorry to trouble again but I would also like to enquire on another scope : Celestron PowerSeeker 127 EQ
http://www.buytelescopes.com/product.as ... id=9954&m=

I would be seriously considering between these 2 scopes. Just let me know the cost of the latter and i will crack my brains over the wkend to decide :)
Many thanks in advance.

Hi, I just like to write some comments here. Given the nature of the lousy eyepieces and barlow that come with the celestron scope, you can just drop that option.

You may want to consider the Meade or
