Important Solar Eclipse Shopping Updates

In the days leading up to the Great American Eclipse, we have been receiving an extraordinary number of phone calls, emails, and orders coming through our system.  We are working as hard as we possibly can to take your calls, respond to your emails and ship your orders, and we are adding labor to support these various efforts, but until the eclipse is behind us our customers can expect some delays in response time.  
Below please find our estimated current wait times during "eclipse mania" and other information that you will need in order to make your experience with High Point Scientific go as smoothly as possible.
UPDATE -  8/16/17
Phone wait times are growing as there are a number of people trying to book expedited orders.  Please note that expedited orders will only ship same day if they are placed before 1 P.M. Eastern Time.  We highly recommend placing orders for next day delivery if you have any concerns about getting your order in time for the eclipse.

Shipping Deadlines
In order to receive your eclipse products via UPS Ground by Friday, August 18th you must place your order by 1:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time on or before the appropriate date listed below.  Of course, you can expedite your order (3-Day, 2nd Day, etc.) as necessary. 


Check out the map below to find the color associated with your shipping zone and then scroll down to find your order deadline for shipment via UPS Ground. If the date has passed, you will need to expedite your order.  Remember, shipments leave our warehouse Monday - Friday (no weekends).  We do not recommend USPS for orders that need to arrive before an important event once the time frame gets tight, as it is now. Remember, once the package has left our building we have no control over delivery. UPS guarantees their stated delivery times, but mistakes do happen. When in doubt about delivery times, expedite as necessary!
