NOTES

Most short-tube refractors are designed to be used in conjunction with a diagonal. Focus may not be achievable without using a diagonal or a focal extender tube.
Diagonals and extender tubes are optional at extra cost.

Please remember that warranty may be void if you internally disassemble any telescope, regardless of model.

If you are considering purchasing a William Optics refractor or accessory then you may also be interested in
Long Perng products.

See our Long Perng section for info...

Prices are subject to change due to recent exchange rate variations and are based on seafreighting. Airfreighting or airmailing costs extra.

The customer is responsible for freight costs both ways when
sending warranty claim items to us.

Accessories shown are optional at extra cost.
 


SHIPPING & INSURANCE NOTES

Insurance cover for goods in transit is available from us for only $2 per $100 value of goods. Please advise us if you require this option when ordering.

Please consider insurance because we are not responsible for loss of parcels or damage sustained by parcels as the carrier is responsible! We do pack well! If your order (e.g. telescope or binocular) is damaged in-transit by the freight company then you must claim on the freight company, not ourselves!!
Of course, if you have paid us for insurance then you simply claim on us. We are quick at resolving damage claims, compared to
many freight companies.

Please do NOT write <fragile> on anything you send to us as doing so greatly increases the risk of damage. Please try to "double-box" all products sent to us.
