About Us

Welcome to Telescope Space, where our mission is to help you enjoy astronomy by offering you quality, appropriate gear at the guaranteed lowest prices. Our customer service is unmatched - both during the purchase process and for as long as you own your gear.

Our Story

When I was a young boy, my parents bought me a small, department-store refractor. They weren’t astronomers and we had no guidebooks - but what views of the moon!

That created a spark, which later ignited when a friend showed me the view through his Dobsonian telescope.

By this time, the Internet was in full swing. I love what the Web has done for amateur astronomy. It allows us to learn astronomy and compare gear. We can make informed decisions at our own pace.

Yet, online customer service (so important in technical hobbies like ours) can be disappointing. I once purchased a telescope at America's largest Internet retailer, and customer support was limited to clicking on a ‘contact the seller’ button. Some astronomy-specific stores even outsource their customer service.

There are some great astronomy stores, to be sure, but Telescope Space is here to make a difference.

Here’s what one customer, David, said recently (see his review here):

This telescope is awesome. My wife and I are serious beginners and have been loving it. Ryan with telescope space has been nothing but incredible. So very helpful and a pleasure to work with. Thank you guys so much for a fantastic start to this amazing hobby!!!

The Telescope Space Difference

Unparalleled customer service - We are a small, tight-knit team. This benefits you, since the person who answers your phone call, chat or email cares deeply about our company. Read our reviews and see how often customers mention us by name. We’re proud of that.

Lifetime support - For as long as you own your telescope, you can call us. We'll talk you through technical issues or help you communicate with the manufacturer if needed. Even if we don't know an answer, we'll definitely get you the information you need though our industry contacts. Take advantage of that.

The best prices - Through promotions, discounted bundles, free accessories, and our 30-day price match guarantee, you'll know you got the best price. But that’s not all…

Deals on multiple items - If you want to purchase more than one item, CALL US FOR THE BEST PRICE. This is another advantage of our small size. When you call, you’ll be talking to a decision-maker. We love saving people money on their set-ups.

And we're not just saying all this. We're doing it. Here's what another of our customers, Dave, says (We appreciate your kind words, Dave!):

"I did considerable shopping around and finally decided to buy my 152 Mak from Telescope Space. Ryan was very helpful with all my questions concerning Explore Scientific and my specific purchase. After a short period using my scope and mount, the mount seemed to have more play than it should have. Ryan had the Explore Scientific owner call me directly, where he immediately offered to exchange my mount. He also had the factory ship out the new mount while I was still using my original unit. Excellent service and sales support from both Ryan at Telescope Space and Explore Scientific. I will buy again from Telescope Space!"

We are based in Phoenix, with shipping locations nationwide. We distribute via FedEx, UPS, and First Class Priority Mail. You can track your order as soon as it ships.

Been cloudy since I got it. Have not been able to use it

I hope you have clear skies soon! When you do, I sure look forward to hearing about your experience. Thanks for your review. I'm glad you're happy.
Sky-Watcher Classic 200P 8" Dobsonian Telescope

This is a really great telescope at a really great price. The weather has been a bit so-so since we put this together, and we only had a couple of nights to use it so far, but have had some good viewing sessions.

Does the job well for the price

I also have a Dobsonian, which is a great telescope to start with. But I wanted something that I could store easily and set up in more places. I also really wanted a Goto system. It doesn’t track as well as some really top-end mounts I've used, but I would buy this again. It's a great all-arounder.

My son enjoys it

My son is studying astronomy at school, so we hauled out an older telescope we bought him when he was younger. We could never figure out how to see anything with it and this time we didn't have any better luck. So, I decided to buy this because I heard it was beginner friendly. I don't know much about lenses and we're pretty new to this, so I can't be too technical. But we've been impressed. We were able to use the Sky Align to get oriented, and we saw quite a lot. We first looked at some serious detail on the moon, and my son was able to locate Saturn and even see its rings! Needless to say we are really happy about it. I hooked my cellphone up to the eyepiece and took some nice photos. I know its not as good as a DSLR, but still fun. We're enjoying it and can't wait to discover more.

This shroud covers it all.

This shroud blocks out all of the light trespass in my area. It has two slots for the eyepiece and the finder scope. A must have item for this instrument.
