Astro Scientific Centre Pte Ltd serves amateurs, professionals and research astronomers and scientists alike with our extensive lines of quality astronomical and scientific products backed by our comprehensive customer service and first class technical support.
Prior to Halley’s comet in 1986, amateur astronomy was virtually at its infancy in Singapore and the surrounding South East Asian region. There were few amateur astronomers then and good astronomical instruments and accessories were not available and difficult to acquire. Astro Scientific Centre was formed in 1987 after the last apparition of the famous Halley’s Comet to address these issues.
We aim to popularise astronomy and make astronomical instrumentation readily available to the public. Astro Scientific Centre took a bold step and was the first of its kind in South East Asia to carry an ambitiously wide range of well known astronomical instruments from telescopes, binoculars, microscopes, accessories, globes and scientific instruments to astronomical posters and publications such as the popular Sky and Telescope since the 80s. We stocked virtually everything an amateur astronomer might need and have been serving the local astronomical and scientific community, industry and institutions in South East Asia now for over 3 decades.
In 1992, The Astronomical Society of Singapore (TASOS) was formed to further promote astronomy and foster astronomical interaction with the International community. As a founding member and the President of TASOS, Astro Scientific Centre have been instrumental in providing essential logistical support to TASOS activities over the years.
Today, Astro Scientific Centre Pte Ltd serves amateurs, professionals and research astronomers and scientists alike with our extensive lines of quality astronomical and scientific products backed by our comprehensive customer service and first class technical support. We are authorised distributors, many exclusive, in Singapore and South East Asia for well known names. Among them and stock we carry includes Celestron, Questar, Takahashi, Pentax, Showa, Carl Zeiss, Fujinon, Vixen, TeleVue, SBIG, Thousand Oaks, Daystar, Sony, Nisshin Domes, Astro Cards, Cambridge University, Willmann-Bell, Sky Publication, Kalmbach Publishing, Kowa and B.E. Meyers etc.
Astro Scientific Centre Pte Ltd have installed and commissioned many turn key observatories over the years; these include The Singapore Science Centre's 5.5m Dome with its 16 inch Cassegrain, a 5m Dome and Observatory instrumentation for Planetarium Negara (then known as The Prime Minister's Planetarium) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia ; a 3m Dome and fully computerised twin 10" telescopes for Nanyang Polytechnic and a 2.4m Nisshin Observatory with Celestron 14 and motorized Takahashi NJP for Anglo Chinese School (Independent) in Singapore and so on.

We are people who are passionate about astronomy. Having travelled around the globe in pursuit of astronomical events like solar eclipses, metor showers or to simply photograph the night sky, we have used and are familar with a wide range of astronomical gears. Speak to any of us and we will be happy to share our experiences and recommend you a set up most appropriate to your needs.
