Hi all
Over the holiday period I managed to get sand on/in my scope's eyepiece after 
it tipped over at Stockton sandspit (the sand I put the tripod on was not as 
firm as it looked). The place I bought the scope from (Astro Optical in 
Artarmon) is no longer in business. Apart from BinTel in Glebe, any Sydney 
north shore based suppliers that anybody would recommend? (The scope is a Bauer 
80A and is about 12 years old. I'm not in the market for a new scope yet as I'm 
trying to save up to replace my battered old Canon 450D.)   A similar note on 
Facebook has generated a recommendation for Rogers optics and Restoration at 
Bankstown, which is still a bit of a hike from my North Turramurra base and 
does not appear to be open on Saturday.

PS - In light of the recent status of BA thread, I was always going to post 
here and on Facebook...
