Welcome to Close Scientific Instruments online!

         My name is Howard Close and I've been in business at 2316 4th Avenue since 1947. We specialize in service and sales, refurbishing and repair of binoculars, telescopes, transit levels, and drafting and surveying and equipment.
         We restore instruments for businesses, individuals and eBay traders -- ship's compasses, barometers, and antique telescopes. Our trader friends keep bringing their finds for repair, lense replacement, instrument cleaning, polishing and restoration for resale and personal use.
