Adopt a Scope

Our expert team of staff are astronomers themselves. Most often, whatever issue you are experiencing is one we have already dealt with on our own gear. We know how important it is to get the troubleshooting done quickly and accurately in order to get you back up and running.

If you have a problem with your equipment, but you didn't purchase it originally from Cloud Break Optics, we have service options available:

Gear Purchased with Other Retailers:

We can provide the same equipment support to our customers who purchased equipment from other vendors, for a nominal fee.  We offer support services for items with a retail cost is below $1000 at an hourly rate of $100. For items with a retail cost greater than $1000, for a nominal fee of 10% of the equipment cost, we will adopt your system as one of our own and support you in your observing and imaging experience. Note, if we have previously helped you with the item in question via phone or email, but you chose to not order through us, our adopt-a-scope fee increases to $200/hour or 40%, respectively.

To schedule hourly support or have us adopt your scope, please email us or give us a call at 206-327-9826.
