The Binocular and Telescope Shop
Mike Smith, who was interested in binoculars and telescopes himself, opened The Bintel shop in 1984, in an attempt to mix business with pleasure. His philosophy is also shared by the other members of staff, Don Whiteman and Michael Chaytor, who are themselves dedicated amateur astronomers.
Inside The Binocular and Telescope Shop
Bintel shop gained a reputation for honest advice and a good range of high quality products. While in the shop you can find beside the products made in Japan or Germany also products made in China, rest assured that they meet high standards of quality. Off course they are cheaper, but their quality is remarkable. You would not be able to buy a product that doesn't meet at least the criteria of a good optical instrument.
