Hey everyone! Richard Harris here – the guy who brought ScopeTrader to life back in 2001!

It’s been a long journey, but ScopeTrader is back and better than ever, with exciting things on the horizon.

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for being here. It's fantastic to be back online with a renewed focus, fresh energy, and an amazing team behind it all!

Here’s to the next generation of "ScopeTraders." Let’s make this the best astronomy hub on the internet!
