We've Made All The Mistakes
So You Don't Have To
We're just a bunch of nerds who care an unreasonable amount about astronomy, astrophotography, birding and science.
The Art of the Down-Sell
Only What You Need, Nothing More
We don’t like to sell anyone anything they don’t need or won’t use. That sometimes means fewer accessories than someone is initially looking for, or a smaller telescope than they had in mind. We’re here to help you find the right product. That means we’ll honestly help you to understand what you’re getting, and what you should expect to get out of it.
The Anti-Junk Rule
You won’t find any junk in our store. That means we might not have all the same products that you might find at a big box store. Instead, we carefully select the best telescopes, binoculars, and accessories for every budget. We want you to enjoy the hobby, not wind up with something that’s just going to gather dust in a closet, or wind up in the trash.
Go Above and Beyond
Personalized Attention & Customer Service
We don’t want to be the only ones saying nice things about All Star, or the products we sell. We have an A+ rating on the BBB, and a 4.9 on more than 100 google reviews and hundreds of 5 star customer reviews! We want you to be confident that you’re dealing with a great company. We also have hundreds of real-life, verified-buyer product reviews on our website so you know exactly what you’re getting.
Be Local and Locally Engaged
Helping to Grow Our Communities
The internet has changed the definition of local. We stay local by supporting school clubs and events wherever we can. We’re proud supporters of RASC Canada, and star parties across the country including the SSSP in Saskatchewan and Starfest in Ontario. We also work with schools and youth groups to support astronomy and scientific learning wherever we can.
