Skylight 102/F7 ED telescope

The Skylight 102ED is no longer available, this page remains as a historical link.

Small and perfectly formed:

Skylight 102ED-2

The Candy Apple Red Skylight 102ED uses an ED glass element, which controls & reduces false colour to allow the tube itself to be well under 1 meter in length.  The reduced focal ratio (& overall length) allows this Skylight to benefit from a wider field of view, utilize a lighter weight mounting, and be a more portable instrument.

This beautiful refractor will build upon the reputation that has earned Skylight exposure in such publications as: The Wall Street Journal (USA & Europe), Astronomy Now Magazine, Astronomy magazine and Astronomy Technology Today.


As with my previous designs, the OTA is handmade (by me) in Wimbledon, Southwest London.  In addition to the exceptional attention to detail that my designs feature, this scope will further include:

  • High quality Skylight R&P focuser
  • Handmade tailpiece/focuser holder
  • Handmade collimateable countercell with 3 push/pull alignment screws
  • Fully internally blackened & flocked
  • Hand signed, numbered & dated
  • Hand rolled, solid brass dew shield, polished & lacquered
  • Supplied in Candy Apple Red/brass or white/brass
  • Trademark Skylight Design lines: clean, minimalist & elegant
  • 102mm F-7 ED hand figured, fully multi-coated doublet, with blackened lens edges complete with a collimateable cell & matching countercell
