I was driving by the Orion Cupertino store, and took this picture.
When I was starting out years ago, not sure I would have gotten started without having a physical
location to go ask dumb questions. It's where I got all of my "beginner" gear. They were pretty
well stocked, and b4 Covid, would stop by there reasonably often to pick up some accessory
Usually one of the in-store staff was the running the "chat" function on the Orion website,
e.g. you could ask a quick question from the website instead of calling on the phone. I
don't see that function on their website unless I'm missing it. I called to ask if the
store was coming back, but didn't get through, so I don't know officially if the store
is closing permanently, but pretty sure it is.
Thank goodness for Cloudy Nights and the ability to learn from others on this site, and
good on-line vendors like our sponsor etc.
