Opticsmart.com - Take a Closer Look

Opticsmart.com is a new division of Carada Inc, a highly respected Home Theater Projection Screen manufacturer based in Alabama. Since 2003, Carada has built an intensely loyal fan base in the Home Theater market by providing high value, high performance products with the finest handmade craftsmanship, supported by truly exceptional customer service.

But here at Carada one hobby we love just as much as Home Theater is Astronomy. Now with Opticsmart.com, we are bringing to the astronomy market the same superior levels of customer service, quality, performance, and value that Carada has long been known for in the home theater market. And our exclusive Apertura brand of Dobsonian telescopes and accessories is just the beginning.

We are glad you have discovered Opticsmart.com and we look forward to helping you find just the right products for your enjoyment of the wonderful world of amateur astronomy. If you are a total “newbie” to astronomy there is a vast universe to be discovered and we want to help you get started and to support you as you learn and grow in this great hobby. Or, if you’re a veteran amateur astronomer who has seen it all, but wants to see it all again, then you’ll find some exciting new possibilities at Opticsmart.com.
