    • We have been selling direct since 1975 through our mail-order catalog and online since 1997. Unlike web-only storefronts or department stores that sell optics only seasonally, we're specialists in telescopes and binoculars - it's what we do year round!

    Price Guarantee

    • Should we lower the price of the product you purchased, you may call (800) 447-1001 within 30 days of delivery date to request a credit for the difference between the price you paid and the current Orion Telescopes & Binoculars selling price found at www.telescope.com. This excludes doorbusters, Clearance Items, mail-in rebates, non-Orion branded products, Special Buy products, shipping rates, free shipping offers, Deal of the Day offers, Flash Sales, 12 Days of Christmas offers, and printing errors, which are not part of this guarantee. Note: If a sale price adjustment is processed for an installment billing order, the credit will be applied to the remaining balance due for the order.

    30 day money-back guarantee
