Learning, Gifts & Fun
High Point Scientific understands that you are always learning, and we want to fuel your love of the Universe in every way we can. That is why we offer a full assortment of astronomy books, software, star charts, and more to help you explore the study of astronomy in new ways.
Astronomy software is a rapidly expanding industry, and it’s easy to see why. Software is often inexpensive, and with companies like Meade, Simulation Curriculum, and Software Bisque leading the charge, you know you’re in good hands. Enjoy clear, stunning celestial views right from your laptop or computer. This makes astronomy software great for educators because they can engage students in astronomy right from the classroom.
When you’re in the field exploring the skies, it may be difficult to find what you are looking for. That is why the best astronomers take star charts with them. Ken Press and Sky Spot have developed some of the best finder charts in the industry. Star charts eliminate the frustration of finding a particular celestial object. Never leave home without one!
Telescope making has also been a favorite pastime of astronomers. At High Point Scientific, we have many helpful astronomy books to get you started from publishers like Sky Publishing and Willmann-Bell. Materials are often inexpensive and can be found in your local hardware store. All you need is an imagination to get you viewing the skies like never before!
