Explore Scientific, offers factory direct, high-quality astronomical instruments designed and manufactured in our own facilities in Guangzhou and Kunming China.
Founded in 2008 by Scott W. Roberts (former VP at Meade Instruments), Explore Scientific began designing new telescopes and high-end eyepieces, including the new 100° Series Nitrogen-Purged Waterproof Eyepieces. In 2009, Explore Scientific became the exclusive distributor of BRESSER products throughout the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand, and today Explore Scientific is a sister company to the German-based optics company BRESSER.
Established in 1957, BRESSER is one of the best known optics companies throughout Europe. Now owned in part by JOC, Explore Scientific distributes BRESSER's high-quality sporting and hunting optics, including riflescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, laser range finders and other outdoor items. In addition BRESSER offers its own line of astronomical telescopes, microscopes, optical instruments, including other science and outdoor products designed for children.
In 2010, the exclusive manufacturer of Explore Scientific's telescopes and eyepieces, Jinghua Optical Electronics Co., Ltd. (JOC), became a partner with Roberts and now owns a majority of the company.
