What do you mean by "not cheap" service? Depending on the cost, I could consider sending it to them.
Thank you very much
Hi Saxatilis (and Mark)
I've just had a look through my old emails about this, and the repair estimate/quote that was attached to one of them has unfortunately gone missing. I do think it was around £250, but that did include new ED objective and ocular, and cleaning/servicing and new nitogen.
They were brilliant about it throughout, and also sent me a post-paid label to send the scope back. At the time (2014) they charged £6.50 for the estimate (waived if you went ahead with the repair). The people I dealt with (they may not be there now, of course), were John Murphy and a lady called Lauren (don't know her second name). Please see below contact details:
