Big enough to carry what you need... Small enough to care

As our name suggests, we specialize in telescopes, but we manage to cram a vast selection of items for the amateur astronomer, birder, hiker, and just about anyone who loves to explore nature!

We are Nick, Harout, and Larry, and we share an enthusiasm for fine optics. Optical instruments that bring us closer to the beauties of nature are our passion, whether those beauties are distant universes, or the micro-universe in a drop of pond water. We carry telescopes, spotting scopes, binoculars, and microscopes, even a large selection of hand magnifiers, and all the books and accessories we can fit into our store.

We are dedicated to serving the needs of astronomers, bird-watchers, microscope enthusiasts, and just about everyone who could call themselves an amateur scientist. Although the store has existed in one form or another for many years, new life has been injected, and we look forward to expansion in the years to come. We are continuously sourcing new and exciting products, and our duty is to get you the best possible products and at the lowest possible prices. We look forward to meeting you!

Vancouver Telescope Centre is a store situated on the West Coast of Canada in Beautiful British Columbia.
