Hands on Optics was founded by a true hobbyist and former astronomy teacher who built his first telescope 45 years ago and has been selling optics for over 25 years. Located just north of Washington DC, retail store is loaded with most major brands of Nature and Astro Optics. We do service, testing, repairs and cleaning in house. Warranty problem, call us first.
