A back order is an order for the goods that cannot be filled at the current time due to a lack of available on-site inventory. The item may be available in the manufacturer's available inventory, or the supplier may need to still manufacture more of the product. Back ordered items can be ordered on our website to ensure your place in line and reserve the product in future shipments.

We regularly update our website to make inventory available as soon as we receive shipments from our suppliers. The best way to be notified when an item is in stock again is to sign up using the "Out of Stock!" Email notification section of the out of stock product's page.

Some items are very popular and sell out extremely quickly. For this reason, we allow customers to reserve these items by placing a Back Order. When you place an order for a back-ordered item, we charge the full cost of the item(s) just as we process payments for in-stock items. Payment guarantees your place in line, allowing you to receive the item at the earliest possible date.  You can cancel your backordered item any time before it ships for a full refund.

We cannot guarantee a specific ship date as product availability is determined by the manufacturers. We will ship back ordered items as soon as we receive them in our warehouse. Orders are shipped on a first ordered first served basis. You can check product expected arrival dates with us by emailing us at  

Not generally. In-stock Items ordered along with back ordered items will normally be held until all items can be shipped together. In some cases we may elect to send a partial shipment and follow up later with back-ordered items.  If you would like in-stock items to ship immediately, please contact us at or in chat.

Due to high demand and limited stock, we can only reserve your item availability for 24 hours.  Please contact us for these requests.  Beyond that, you will need to place an order online at

You can call us, chat with us or email us at to process a cancellation of your order.  Refunds generally take 2-4 business days for credit card issuers to process the refunds.  PayPal is frequently immediate.

Yes, our return policy can be found HERE

We will notify you via email once your order is ready. The email will contain contact instructions and our pickup address.  Curbside pickup is scheduled by appointment only.

As per our policies and agreements with manufacturers, we are not able to discount products below manufacturer-specified pricing. In general we will already have prices set to the minimum price allowed by manufacturers.

Shipping and Other Charges

We provide several shipping options upon checkout based on the contents of the order and the customer location. The best way to determine shipping costs is to add the item to your cart, click Check Out, and enter your shipping address details.  The store will then present you with various shipping options with costs and delivery time estimates.  There is no commitment to purchase when viewing shipping rates.  

Any item mailed outside of Canada may be subject to the custom duties and taxes levied by the recipient's government.  This is the responsibility of the buyer to be aware of and pay the amount based on your home country's import regulation and product's country of origin.  Telescopes Canada does not charge custom duties and fees at the time of sale.

Yes, we purchase insurance for all shipments.  Please contact us at if you have any concerns about your shipment.


This payment method lets you finance large purchases in installments.  Just choose Affirm on the payment method screen while checking out.

As part of signing up for Affirm, you will submit an online application to pre-qualify and determine your spending limit and interest rates.  The "Prequalify Now" link can be found when you view your cart and it is located under the Subtotal.  Prequalifying shows you a preview of how much you could spend if you were to purchase using a Affirm payment plan.

The Affirm option will only show if your cart contains an order for a total value that Affirm works with.  If it's a small purchase or a very large one, Affirm may not offer a payment plan for this amount.

For questions related to billing and payment, please contact Affirm directly.  You will have received contact and payment information from them when you made your purchase.
