Message from Sky & Telescope


Welcome to the new Sky & Telescope web store. We’ve been offline since August but are thrilled to be back up and running.

Transitioning our web infrastructure from the previous owner proved to be much harder and more complicated than we imagined. We apologize to each and every one of you for this delay, but we took our time to make sure everything would work correctly so that your browsing and purchasing experience is as easy as possible. We may not be Amazon, but our goal is to bring you unique products as easily and quickly as possible. We view ourselves as part of the community we serve, so getting things right is important.

As you know, the Sky & Telescope team works hard to bring interesting, valuable, and fun products to you, our community of astronomy enthusiasts. In the coming months we will roll out some new items as we get them developed and produced (like the eagerly anticipated eclipse-track Earth globe — it’s awesome!). If you have ideas about other items you might like us to produce or carry, let us know. Although we can’t promise to do everything, we’ll carefully review any ideas we receive.

Thanks for your ongoing support of Sky & Telescope!
