Great place for binoculars and spotting scopes, too, and they let you handle the merchandise. Knowledgeable and pleasant staff. Best selection you'll find in the Denver area.

I've made the great majority of my astronomy purchases at S&S over the last 7 or 8 years. Kathie and crew provide great personal service - NEVER any pressure and SUPER advice. Even if it costs them a sale. They give the best prices they can - internet prices in this market are lower, but it's worth a few $$ more to support this outstanding local retailer.

I always recommend that people visit S&S when they're considering the purchase of a telescope or binoculars for astronomical purposes, or a really high end camera.

Take the trip to S&S, visit with Kathie and her team. They're not a big store, don't have a lot of people, and you may have to wait a while to really talk with someone, but ultimately what you gain from the experience will be worth the wait.
