Please Note

Orion has made the difficult decision to close our warehouse facility in the Netherlands. With the continuing supply chain/logistics challenges and slowness in the economy we have found that it is not economically feasible to maintain operations in the UK and Europe.

We have therefore stopped taking orders on this website. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We will continue to have Orion dealers in Europe to meet the needs of Orion consumers. We will also continue to honor the 30-Day product return period as well as honoring the Orion warranty for purchases made in the UK and Europe.

Our US-based Customer Service Representatives are here to help. Contact them via email at support@telescope.com or in the United Kingdom, via phone at 0-800-041-8146 (Monday-Friday between the hours of 1300 and 2400 GMT).

M42 & NGC 1977
I have been into amateur astronomy since 1997 when I bought my first telescope, a 6" Orion Deep Space Explorer. 2 years ago I sold that scope and bought an Orion XT12G 12" dobsonian with goto/tracking. In additional to spectacular visual views the scope allowed me to take some really good planetary images with a Celestron Neximage camera. About a year ago I got into deep-space imaging with the imaging rig described in this image post.
