About High Point Scientific

About High Point Scientific

High Point Scientific was born out of a childhood hobby, inspired by the golden age of space exploration. With a firm, ever-present hobby and a proven entrepreneurial spirit, my father, Bob Dugan, launched High Point Scientific in the fall of 2001.

From the beginning our team knew that the technological portion of our business was going to change rapidly, but our original service-based principals have not. Holding true to that core, today we are making it more convenient than ever for our customers to receive expert product advice, purchase products, return products and sell used equipment.

Since 2001 our company has progressed from a brick and mortar, catalog and mail order business to a more advanced online business, with our customer's preferred purchasing medium being We are proud to have delivered a completely new online buying experience with features such as layered navigation, live chat, equipment buyback forms and an enhanced customer account section.

When you call High Point Scientific, you will have the opportunity to work with some of the most knowledgeable telescope experts in the country. At High Point you will not find sales people. Instead, you will find a team of hobbyists that are happy to assist with the telescope decision-making process.

At any give time we have thousands upon thousands of Telescopes and Telescope Accessories in stock from top manufacturers such as Meade and Celestron. Whether you're looking for the latest computerized telescope, CCD camera, wide field eyepiece or heavy-duty telescope mount we've got you covered. The depth of our inventory allows us to deliver your order fast.

With all of these advancements, our web-based business has grown exponentially over the last several years. As a retailer we look very closely at our customer's actions and build improvements to enhance buyer convenience and satisfaction. As a result, you will see more advanced features hitting our website over the next 12 months as part of our effort to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers. We are astronomers at heart and understand the excitement that comes with looking through the eyepiece of a telescope. Give us a call, we will be more than happy to show you how we can make your hobby more enjoyable today!

On behalf of all of us here at High Point, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the support over the last seventeen years. Without you, none of this would have been possible.

Clear Skies,

Robert Dugan Jr.
