In Search of Stardust currently less than $3 new

April 22, 2018

I don’t know how or why this is happening, but Jon Larsen’s excellent book In Search of Stardust: Amazing Micrometeorites and Their Terrestrial Imposters, which originally retailed for $24.99, is currently available on Amazon for $2.37. If you have Amazon Prime, the shipping is free, so this really nice full-color hardback book is cheaper than…well, just about everything. I’ve had a copy since it first came out and I just ordered another one on general principles. Thinking about ordering a stack to pass out to people who are interested in space, science, or just, like, things.

I don’t know how long this ridiculous sale will last, but I suggest you do the right thing. Here’s the link.

Get $5 off your first purchase from OpticalInstruments.com

February 21, 2017

Hey, I was temporarily without a 10mm eyepiece (long story) and I have been sufficiently happy with the Bresser 20mm 70-degree that came with my AR102S Comet Edition that I plunked down thirty bucks for the 10mm version (sale price, down from $50). It was only my second-ever purchase from OpticalInstruments.com (after the Bresser Spektar spotting scope a couple of years ago), but they rewarded my ‘ongoing support’ with this deal. You can use this link and unique code:

https://opticalinstruments-com.myshopify.com/?redeem=58abdb56bb070f0018560f59

to get $5 off your first purchase, and if you do, I’ll get a $5 kickback. As far as I know, there is no limit to how often this can be used by people making their first purchase there. So if you’ve been tempted by something at that store, here’s your chance to save a little dough. Happy shopping!
