Time & Optics

Time & Optics, Ltd is a family run business since 1976.  You can buy new watches and clocks or get them fixed here.  But the reason I visit this business is for the optics–binoculars, telescopes, and accessories for birders as well as field guides and birding books.  I know Robert Hershberger personally as a friend, but he is also an excellent birder.  Robert has looked through more binoculars and telescopes than I ever will.  He knows the latest in optics and he will provide great advice for the asking.  One of the big pluses for a live visit to Time & Optics is to take a couple scopes outside and take a look through the scopes in a real outdoor environment.  I consider it a great privilege to know Robert.  I wholeheartedly support Time & Optics and I really am impressed what Robert and his family have to offer the birding community.

  1. Upon seeing your recommendation of Time & Optics, I decided to stop in today and look at their selection of spotting scopes. As you described, Robert was incredibly helpful! He allowed me to take them outside on his tripods to test them out side-by-side. This is exactly what I needed, since reading reviews online just doesn’t provide the information that a hands-on test does. A sincere, “Thank you!” from a very satisfied customer!

  2. Hi, my name is Joshua and I was looking for a price on a Vortex Viper HD spotting scope model #VPR-80A-HD I was looking at some on the internet and also a tripod to go with it , I would like to keep the package deal under $1,100 if possible. You can call us at 330-897-1474 thanks.

  3. Bought a Tri-Sling today the booth of Time And Optics, from the young Amish man that invented it and sold it to us at the Birder’s Digest optics expo in Columbus, Ohio. Using it for out spotting scope tripod and love it. Also love it is made in America, and invented by a young entrepreneur.
