"Your Astronomy Partner"

About Us - Stargazing In The Desert
At ASTRAL SCOPES, we understand the frustration people face when choosing their first telescope - or their children's first - and when it is time to step up their stargazing game, with the multitudes of options: types, sizes, brands, functions, accessories. Help tend to be limited, with retailers selling only limited options, or being unavailable when you need some questions answered. We want to change all that.
We opened our doors in 2018 to be a customer-focused store that listens to its customers' (yours!) needs, and do all what it takes to provide the products and options that you need. We want to partner with you through all your astronomy and skies exploration journey.
Our Commitment is based on 3 principles:
Free Shipping Across Canada
Free Shipping Across Canada (except to YT, NT, NU) - no expensive and unexpected shipping charges. The prices you see on our website are as close as it can be to what you are actually going to pay.
