Explore Scientific

 


 

The science of astronomy, or "law of the stars" ("astro" is Greek for "star", and the word "nomos" means "law"), has been around for thousands of years, but it's only been twelve generations since telescopic optics were first aimed towards the sky. The first explorers of the heavens were amateur astronomers, and their discoveries changed everything, from the way we view the universe around us to the way we think about our existence here on Earth.
  

Designing and manufacturing optics is at the heart of what we do. Explore Scientific designers and optical craftspeople constantly strive to produce optical tools that will deliver the precision and dependability that explorers of the Universe deserve, regardless of their level of expertise.
  

Producing optics of this caliber requires a solid design, careful fabrication, and multiple tests throughout the manufacturing process, but it also takes a dogged determination to keep perfecting our processes and skills so that our products keep getting better and better. To further insure your faith in Explore Scientific products, we back all of our telescopes with the Explore STAR Transferrable, Extended Life of the Product Warranty, so you can keep exploring!
