The company’s extensive product line includes astronomical telescopes, computerized GoTo equatorial mounts, binoculars, spotting scopes, microscopes, and riflescopes.

The company’s brand offerings include Explore Scientific, BRESSER, Alpen, Galileoscope, and, now, Vixen
“We are honored to be associated with the venerable Vixen brand that has provided some of the finest products in our industry for more than 70 years,” said Scott Roberts, Explore Scientific founder and president. “This distributorship agreement with Vixen marks another important milestone in our company’s expansion to serve our community as a leading provider of astronomical telescopes, microscopes, and sports optics for education and recreation.”
Explore Scientific plans to expand into the full range of Vixen’s product lines, making them available to authorized dealers and consumers alike throughout the Americas.
