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).

I have been doing visual astronomy off and on for 20 years and decided to get into imaging about 2 years ago. I love looking at clusters and planets through telescope and imaging nebula and galaxies. My first "real" telescope was the Orion SpaceProbe 130EQ which I used for most of 8 years which I loved. I upgraded to the Orion Sirius 8 because of it had great reviews as a great beginning imaging scope which has not disappointed me at all.
