Australian outlets do not stock these specific Meade spares despite selling their telescopes and mounts. They indicate that these items are near impossible to source however I found the item in 5 minutes through your website. Seems it is easier to talk to US based Companies first.
The downside is that usually postal charges to Australia are up there but that is the price of getting the right products. The AU Dollar is not so attractive presently. (Posted on 2/3/2016)
