Get ye a Galileoscope!

Bad Astronomer, Phil Plait, is helping to promote a cool science gadget: the Galileoscope! It’s an inexensive telescope being offered in conjunction with the Year of Astronomy. But Phil says that in order for production to continue, folks need to buy ‘em! So, I placed my order for two, and I hope you’ll stop by the site and order some yourself. They’re only 15 bucks.

    Comments at Phil P’s site include many complaints about shipping costs, which can be found only by going partway through a purchase checkout process: $8.95 to my zip in the Gainesville area for one unit.

    Not too bad, actually, but not the lowest price for a 50x scope on the ‘net, either…

    Phil P also implies a cut-off or price increase at the end of May: ~27 hours from now?
