Upgrade To The Best



As a benefit of ownership, our customers can now trade up to a world-class, hand-figured SVX refractor. 
This new program allows you to effortlessly upgrade your used Stellarvue to one of our new, world-class SVX refractors! When your used Stellarvue telescope is sold by us, it is cleaned, aligned, and guaranteed to meet our standards. We sell it for you with a 30-day, money-back guarantee and a 2-year warranty. We do this all for a standard 20% consignment fee. 

Why are we doing this?
Stellarvue is now creating SVX optics that we hand-figure in our optical shop in Auburn, CA. These are the most accurate refractor optics in the field. The development of this process entailed a three-year effort and the purchase of more than a million dollars' worth of equipment. Our loyal customers supported us as we evolved, and if it weren't for them, we never would have seen this process through to completion. In recognition of this, our new certified pre-owned (CPO) program is our way of giving back to our supporters and allowing them to effortlessly upgrade their equipment to the very best. Our friends deserve nothing less.

What this program is and what it isn't:
This is a trade-up program specifically developed to allow customers to trade in a former model (non-SVX) Stellarvue for a new SVX refractor. This program is not for trading for a used (CPO) telescope. To qualify, you must be trading in a Stellarvue for a new Stellarvue SVX refractor (80 mm or larger). 

 What do I do to trade up?

1. Call us at (530) 823-7796 or email us at to let us know you want to participate in a trade-up. We will discuss what we think your current non-SVX telescope will sell for. If at that point you wish to proceed, we will assign your scope a return authorization number.
2. Carefully pack your telescope and ship it to us insured with the return authorization number written on the box. 
3. We will contact you when the telescope arrives to confirm condition and pricing. 
4. Stellarvue will clean, align, and guarantee the telescope as a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) scope. It will be sold with our standard 30-day money-back guarantee and 2-year warranty. Approximately 30 days after the sale of your used telescope, you will receive 80% of the sale price toward the purchase of a new SVX refractor. 

There are two options you have in getting your new telescope:
A. Wait until your telescope sells as a CPO, then 30 days after the sale, buy the SVX refractor of your choice with 80% of the CPO sale price deducted from the purchase price, or 
B. Buy the SVX telescope now, and we will reimburse you for 80% of the sale price 30 days after we sell the CPO.

Stellarvue Family 
Stellarvue customers like yourself are part of an ownership community like no other in the industry: proud, loyal, and passionate. We like to refer to this community as our "Stellar-family".

We realize that our upgrade program is not your only option for selling your beloved telescope. What you're choosing to do by participating in our CPO process is helping the next generation of the Stellarvue family. Your former telescope's new owner will get all the benefits of our full 2-year warranty because you wanted to ensure its performance will be as good as it ever was, guaranteed.

New to Stellarvue? 
For new Stellarvue customers, our CPO telescopes are a great opportunity to purchase a high-quality used telescope with a full 2-year warranty at a reduced cost. Trust us when we say they don't last long once listed here as “Stellarvue Certified Pre-Owned”! Check back often as these trade-ins become available. They will often sell within a day; sometimes within hours.
