beacon hill telescopes


Recommended Posts

Thinking of getting a Dob. I know of Orion Optics Uk but still waiting for a reply to my email I sent a couple of days ago.

so has anyone had any dealings with beacon hill telescopes lately?

i remember years ago my friend had a 10” dob from them and that was a great scope.

I have passed a message on to Barry at beacon hill for you. He is pretty much retired now but I do know he still does the mounts.

Thanks Martin. 

It all depends on me selling my 16” explore scientific dob. Which I will put up for sale in the next day or two.

No longer have it but it was called The Blue Whale an OD350 with a Stellarcat drive system.

Apparently changing colours with powder coating entails complete cleaning of the system which is a bit of a job.
