Welcome to our website!

Dear friends and customers, summer seems to have arrived. Although the nights are now short, they are also warmer and observing the night sky is much more comfortable now than it was in the winter. in the evenings Jupiter is an easy to spot target in the southern sky. Try observing its moons over several days and see how their positions change as they orbit the planet. Our Plumber’s Telescope with about 30x magnification is ideal for this.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, we are here to help and as usual we aim to ship all orders the same day by 1st class mail, provided they reach us by 3pm (or by noon on a Wednesday).

Have fun browsing through our website, yours
