Does anyone have any information about where I could obtain a telescope, please? Nothing too fancy, as this is for my daughter. I am having no joy in finding one in TRNC at the moment, so any advice would be most welcome.

Best selection I have seen out here is on the bottom floor of the Orphanides complex in the South, I know, its in the South but they are good and not a fortune either.



If she only wants one to "Play" with then go for a cheap 2" refractor but if she is serious then there are "Big Un's" there as well - ones for me to drool over if I had 250.00 spare that is.

There is also a large shop on the upper floor of the Cyprus Mall (next door to Ikea) which has a very good selection of telescopes. Sorry I can't remember the name of it but as you go through the door, the telesopes/binoculars are right in front of you.

Regards

Paul

Wonderful!!! Thanks for your advice, my daughter will be well chuffed when I get her the telescope she talks about endlessly.... I will even have a go at it myself.

Thank you!

What make? where did you buy it i.e. has it traveled from another country? It may be just a simple case of adjusting the mirror. But without knowing anymore detail it would be hard to give advice.
