    About Orion Telescopes & Binoculars

    Orion Telescopes & Binoculars is the largest direct-to-consumer brand of quality optics for amateur astronomers and outdoor enthusiasts in North America. Established in 1975, we've built our reputation on providing high-quality products backed by a satisfaction guarantee, competitive prices, and the best customer service and support in the industry.

    We've been selling direct since 1975 through our colorful mail-order catalog and, since 1997, via our full online catalog. 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. We have a highly trained sales and support staff who are knowledgeable about our products and willing and able to help you make an appropriate buying decision, and even assist you after the sale. We're experienced, informed, and, perhaps uncharacteristically in this day and age, available to serve you person-to-person. You can talk to us!

    Our large, modern warehouse and efficient warehouse team enable us to ship nearly all orders out the same day from on-hand stock. Orion-brand products come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, the best in the business. Customer satisfaction is not just a cliché at Orion; it's a commitment.

    The Orion brand stands for high quality, excellent value, and an unswerving commitment to customer care and service. We continue to develop new and innovative Orion-brand products with the goal of offering amateur astronomers and outdoor enthusiasts the best selection in state-of-the-art optics, at affordable prices.

    Located in central California in the Monterey Bay area, we operate Orion retail stores in Cupertino and at our Watsonville headquarters office. Selected Orion products are available at finer astronomical dealers throughout the United States and internationally.
