For the last 3 years, SGL Mediacast has continued to develop Telescope Mag into the premier digital-only magazine of inspiring real-life stories.

Through interactive storytelling, the mag explores the world of artists, activists, adventurers, innovators, athletes and ordinary individuals who’ve faced extraordinary circumstances. The app-based magazine is available for iPads and tablets on iTunes and Google Play, as well as, an app for mobile with shortened stories. In 2015, Telescope launched its inaugural issue, featuring the story of Michaela DePrince. The second issue features Bear Grylls and his summit of Everest.

In 2016, Telescope began selling branded apparel and merchandise in its online store.
