Astronomy classifieds and news website re-launches

ScopeTrader.com is back for astronomers everywhere! Hunt for the latest telescopes in astronomy classifieds, and stay updated with the latest astronomy news. Dive into reviews, discover new and used equipment, and connect with fellow astro-enthusiasts.

Imagine traveling back to 2001, where a young and passionate budding astronomer juggles a corporate career as an engineer and software developer by day, and devotes his evenings to working with and on telescopes. This dedication ultimately led to a patent and copyright for a process known as the "HyperTune."

In the same year, this astronomer launched a website called ScopeTrader. Designed as a hub for telescope gear, astronomy classifieds, member astrophotos, and forums, ScopeTrader gained modest popularity with about 4,000 registered members. Despite its success, it was shut down in 2016 due to the lack of time needed to maintain the free service.

Fast forward to 2024, and that same astronomer (yes, it's me) decided to relaunch ScopeTrader with the meticulous attention it deserves.

Our new website is still powered by the same passion that launched ScopeTrader over 20 years ago. But this time, we’ve got the manpower to innovate new features quickly, maintain the site, and keep up with the ever-growing popularity of astronomy among hobbyists.
