We've teamed up with OpticsPlanet to create a fundraiser where you can support SETI@home while getting great deals on telescopes, astronomy gear, sunglasses & prescription eyewear and much more! Check it out here at the SETI@home coupon store.

Is it possible you have the wrong company? Optics Planet is based outside Chicago and ships from a warehouse in Northbrook, IL.

It's got an A+ BBB rating, 91% positive on amazon.com and 4 checks on epinions.com, and like most internet companies all the reviews seem to be either 5 check or 1 check reviews with a few in between. Most people seem to have had good experiences, but some have had bad experiences, which seems typical for an internet retailer.
