SERVICES

We are your full service telescope shop, ready to assist you with most tasks.  Please inquire for more information on these and other services shown below.
APPRAISAL

 

We're not just familiar with our own telescopes, but also those from other manufacturers. Whether a classic telescope from a company long since out of business or a modern day computerized telescope, we can help you value what you have.  This also includes eyepieces, lenses, cameras, binoculars, antique books and other astronomy-related paraphernalia

 

Prices start $75 for Appraisal Services. Please inquire for more specific pricing.

RESTORATION

 

Have you inherited a telescope?  Did you make a super garage sale or flea market find?  Are you a school with a telescope in disrepair?  Through our network of vendors and associates, we can bring that classic telescope, whether reflector or refractor, back into working order.  We utilize modern components but can also source period parts for a true restoration to "factory" finish.

 

Standard shop rate of $75/hour plus cost of materials. Please inquire for a custom quote.

"HOW TO" TUTORIALS

 

New to the hobby of astronomy?  Interested but don't know where to begin with regard to equipment?  Already have a telescope but unsure of how to use it or where in the sky to point it?  Book a one-on-one "Teeter's Telescope Tutorial" at our manufacturing facility to learn which telescope is right for you or how to properly use the telescope you already have.

 

$115 for 1.5 Hour Private Tutorial including night observing. Weather dependent.

MAINTENANCE

 

We know, life happens and things come up. Your once prized telescope now resides in the closet, basement or attic and while still functional, could use some TLC.  Allow us to help revive your telescope, whether it's cleaning, calibrating, collimating, adjusting, etc., we can bring it back to fully functional.  In some cases, this services even leads to a telescope that functions better than new.

 

Maintenance services start at $75/hour. Please inquire for more specific pricing.

UPGRADES

 

Ready to upgrade your focuser, primary mirror cell, finderscope, axis bearing surfaces, etc.? Ready to upgrade to Digital Setting Circles (SkyCommander or ArgoNavis) and/or full GoTo/Tracking capability (ServoCat)?  Looking to add a secondary dew heater or upgrade your entire secondary mirror and support system? We offer these and many other upgrades for most commerical and home-built telescopes.

 

Standard shop rate of $75/hour plus cost of materials. Please inquire for a custom quote.

REFINISHING

 

The bread and butter of our in-house services is our wood finishing capabilities.  Have a wooden telescope either from us or one of our competitors?  Is it showing its age and not nearly as "showroom" quality as it once was? Allow us to strip, sand, stain and clear-coat the wooden components, in your choice of stain color.  We also offer powder coating services for those metals parts also showing their age.
