AVAILABILITY OF STELLARVUE TELESCOPES
We strive to keep our handcrafted telescopes in stock at all times. Orders of 'ready-to-ship' or 'in-stock' telescopes on our website will be shipped within 48 hours of receiving payment.
Occasionally, our popular and higher-end telescopes may be listed as 'in-production.' The expected ship date for any 'in-production' telescope is shown on each telescope page.
If an expected ship date is not shown on a telescope page, it is immediately available and ready-to-ship.
When you order back-ordered or 'in-production' telescopes online, payment in full is charged. However, if you prefer, you may order by telephone and we can charge you a 50% deposit, with the remaining balance due before the telescope ships.
At the current time you will notice that our SV152 Flagship is back ordered for a longer period of time. These are our largest and highest resolution telescopes and each takes a significant amount of time to complete.
We are currently adding 11 new grinding and polishing spindles in our optical shop and hiring two more highly trained and qualified optical technicians. This summer we expect to increase production on SV152's, shortening wait times. In the mean time, the sooner you order, the sooner you will receive your telescope.
