In 2006, Skylight was envisioned as a place to buy antique, vintage, or generally interesting Astronomy gear.
Skylight premium optical tubes & tripods are handmade and assembled in Wimbledon, Southwest London. They are a unique way of looking at telescopes. Instead of simply owning the latest assembly of parts from the CNC mill, Skylight refractors reflect another time, where the craftsman had his hands on every part and the classic English refractors of T. Cooke and Sons of York/London are a constant inspiration and assist in keeping the balance between Victorian visual design & modern engineering in my Skylight designs.
That is the Skylight difference.
