[Bell Historians] Turret bells

Two or three years ago I finally invested in a telescope (actually what 
they call a spotting scope) and tripod for looking at turret bells. I 
say "finally" because if I'd realised how much better it is for reading 
inscriptions and seeing the detail I would have bought one long ago. 
Hand-held binoculars just don't do the job anything like as well

In Birmingham on Monday evening, I noticed that the (re-opened) Jessops 
has a "clearance" batch of spotting scopes at just £39.95. They seem 
pretty good - I could read the opening hours notice by the door that I 
could barely see by naked eye. If anyone has thought of buying a 
telescope but hesitated on grounds of cost, one of these could be well 
worth getting while stocks last.

No idea how to check the details online or order - but I guess there's a 
Jessops website, or a means of contacting the Birmingham store.

Just posting this in case this is an opportunity for someone
