Please note: Mile High Astronomy is a small independent business. We don't have special treatment from our shippers, nor do we have warehouses spread across the country. We do everything possible to ship orders quickly from our Lakewood, Colorado store either the same day as the order (for orders placed before 11:AM MDT) or next business day. Shipping times depend on distance and the carrier. Please plan ahead with the very heavy package volumes and shipper delays this time of year.
