Astronomy outreach enthusiast and former VP of Meade Instruments, Scott W. Roberts, announced his return to the telescope manufacturing industry in 2008 with the launch of Explore Scientific, LLC. Explore Scientific has become one of the fastest growing brands in our lineup, and it is easy to see why. The telescopes and eyepieces offered by Explore Scientific represent some of the best values available to the amateur astronomer today. They were the first company to answer the new gold standard of eyepiece designs with their 100 degree apparent field series, and they remain the only credible mainstream alternative to the industry leader. Skies Unlimited expects great things from Explore Scientific in the future, and we are proud to have been a part of their successful market launch.
Explore Scientific currently produces three types of telescopes: Doublet achromatic refractors, ED Apochromatic Triplets, and the David Levy Comet Hunter.
Explore Scientific offers several competitive eyepiece lines with apparent fields ranging from 68 degrees to an astonishing 120 degrees.
As of early 2014 Explore Scientific offers two basic point and shoot altazimuth mounts equipped with Vixen style saddles.
Explore Scientific offers a small but growing line of telescope accessories for use with their own as well as other brands of telescopes.
