As shown on this website, owning a Skylight Telescope can be an investment into a design I have already completed, or it can be a bespoke item designed to suit your space or requirements.  With either option, an inquiry is absolutely free so please contact me with any questions you may have.


Skylight Refractors can be shipped Worldwide.  Private viewings by appointment can be arranged in the Wimbledon area of Southwest London and they are available to order directly from me here at the source.  They are also available from these carefully chosen dealers around the world:

UnitronItalia / Rome, Italy

la maison de l’Astronomie / Paris, France

ICStars / MO, USA


Skylight Refractors require a 2″ diagonal (not included) to reach focus.  Any mountings pictured on this website are shown for demonstration purposes only and are not included unless otherwise specified.   Mounting arrangements can be recommended and are available.  Please contact me for further information.


Shipping charges are not included in the prices shown.  As with other high value items, shipping internationally may incur customs/duty/VAT during importation which will be the buyers responsibility.


Skylight refractor optical tubes are designed, built and assembled by hand in the UK in small quantities. As they are hand assembled (& in the case of some elements, hand made), each example is 100% individual & unique. Where required, the metal parts are prepared & polished by hand. Each refractor is then star tested before it leaves.  Due to their hand-made/assembled nature, even its’ few siblings are slightly different.  This hand-made, unique nature means each example may contain minor imperfections, which should be considered part of the instruments heritage.

To you, the original purchaser, I guarantee my Skylight optical tubes for 2 years from the date of purchase.

Corporate use:

A fully mounted Skylight Refractor makes a stunning display and when used to share views of the moon, can be an excellent team building tool/exercise.  I would be pleased to place a fully mounted Skylight Refractor design in your home, hotel, office or business.  Discounts for purchases in mass will be considered on a case by case basis and installation/local instruction can be made available if required.

Film Studio Rental:

While the majority of Skylight refractors are built to order, some telescopes can be made available for Film or TV studio rental.  Delivery to most major studios within the M25 can be easily arranged, with others also possible.  If you feel a Skylight would be ideally suited for your film set, please get in touch to discuss availability & options.
