Vernonscope & Company was founded 1958 in Candor - a picturesque community nestled in the scenic Finger Lakes region of upstate NewYork. Candor proved the ideal setting for founder Donald Yeier to fulfill his vision of producing the finest astronomical accessories available anywere at any price. Precision hand-craftmanship and a discerning eye for quality enabled Don to quickly establish Vernonscope & Co. as the industry benchmark.
In early 2013, Don sold Vernonscope to Tony and Liz Mansfield, who continue the business as Vernonscope LLC. We commit to maintaining the excellent quality produced by Don Yeier for the last 50 years.
Vernonscope eyepieces are made in the USA, in Raleigh, Noth Carolina.
