Please note, yes it is true, we are no longer taking new orders. Thanks to our great customers for 20 amazing years in business! We are completing standing orders, then building one final In-Stock 13.1" F/4.5 and then will be moving onto other endeavors (work and personal). See below for more details.
TeeterTots Nolan and Vaughn are our next great adventure! Perhaps there will be a Teeter & Sons Telescopes, LLC., in the future?
Much appreciation goes out to the amateur astronomy community who has supported us, and continues to do so, over the last 20+ years that we have been in business. February 2022 marked the start of our 20th year of building our custom made TeeterScope telescopes! When I started this business in my parent's garage in Howell, NJ, in 2002 I didn't know what the future would hold. My hopes were modest, I simply wanted an outlet for my telescope building addiction. Over 300 telescopes later, each one unique and each one with a story, I feel like I have exceeded my original intention. Thank you to everyone who purchased a TeeterScope from us, and thank you to those who have been exceedingly patient these last 2.5 years when production has lagged. Our final orders have been taken and will certainly keep us busy through the remainder of the year. No more orders will be accepted as I take 2023 and beyond to focus on other endeavors, personal and work, and especially our twin boys, Nolan and Vaughn. It's been a pleasure to serve this great community of amateur astronomers.
