Welcome to New Moon Telescopes!



“Made for the observing field…”

At NMT, excellence in craftsmanship is what sets our telescopes apart. We are consumed with attention to detail in each of our instruments and strive to create the highest caliber telescope in every regard. We not only provide a superior viewing experience through excellence in optics, but we ensure high quality workmanship and attractiveness throughout your telescope from the flawless wood finish and perfect balance to the discreetly positioned battery and precise box joints. A New Moon Telescope is simply second to none.
