About Sky Scientific

Sky Scientific began operations in Skyforest, California, in 1979 manufacturing a line of Polaroid®-back cameras for astrophotography as well as aftermarket accessories for Meade® and Celestron® Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. A retail store offered instruments and accessories for astronomy as well as conventional photography.

Optical design software was initially created for internal product development purposes but evolved into a viable commercial product beginning in 1994. Software and book titles were first offered in 2007 under the imprint "Sky Scientific Press." Currently, Sky Scientific offers mail order and internet sales of optical design and other software and books plus a mixed compendium of new, used and surplus optics and supplies for amateur astronomers, telescope makers and educators.

Sky Scientific became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sky Scientific Press in 2013. Both companies are privately held and NOT affiliated in any manner with the publicly-traded company, Sky Scientific, Inc., trading with the stock symbol "SKYS".

Sky Scientific operations were moved from Skyforest, California, to Brookings, Oregon, effective January 1, 2019.
