Alpine Astronomical was started with the purpose of making unique high-end astronomical equipment visible and available to discriminating amateurs.  The equipment that we promote and sell represents what we have found to be the most functional and high-quality of its type available.  Many of our items are unknown or simply unavailable to amateurs in the US.  We truly hope that by offering this equipment, we can bring something new to this market.


Alpine Astronomical was founded out of our own love and interest in amateur astronomy.  We've been active observers and imagers for over 30 years, and have developed a knowledge and sense for what works, and what doesn't.  The products we offer are all used with our own telescopes.  These products have proven their usefulness and meet our own discriminating standards.  As dedicated users of this equipment, we are also uniquely suited to expertly support it, and to provide you with assistance and advice.  Furthermore, we have been careful to partner with one of the most respected astronomical designers and manufacturers in the world, Baader Planetarium.  Unlike grey-market imports, our Baader Planetarium products are fully supported by ourselves as well as the manufacturer. 


Please take some time to sift through the extensive information on our website.  You won't find a huge array of the same old products offered by bulk mail order houses.   As you can tell, we are a small, technically driven company.  We have attempted to provide a large amount of detail and suggested applications for each product.  We certainly appreciate any feedback you may have, and encourage you to email us with any comments or specific questions.  Our overriding philosophy on customer service is to treat you with the same honesty and respect that we want to be treated with as customers ourselves.  Though much of our equipment can be considered 'high-end' we are more than happy to help amateurs who are just getting started as well as experienced amateurs in search of that certain item.  Chances are, if we don't have it, we can point you in the right direction.



Clear Skies,
