Any refractor lover will agree that the heart of any Achromat or Apochromat is the lens. With this in mind, I did not wish to build this refractor around just any lens, I wanted something with pedigree. Late last year, the pieces began to fall into place, and I am delighted to announce that the objective lens for the next Skylight F15 Achromat (The Skylight AR101/15) will be designed & supplied by TeleVue of New York, USA.
Each 101mm/1500mm objective will be individually inspected by TeleVue in New York. Once approved, they will be shipped to me in London where I fabricate and assemble the OTA’s.
I can reveal that the new Skylight AR101/15 will be available in 3 models:
The mid range version is complete with bespoke finder brackets, 40mm brass finder scope, Premium Baader Steeltrack focuser, fully baffled & blackened internally.*starting from £1680.00
For the first time, A Skylight Refractor will be available in a colour other than black. Available colours are Gloss or Satin Black, Deep Red, Satin White and for the Unitron enthusaist; Satin white with black dew shield & brass accessories. At present, these refractors are being made to order and colour can be specified at time of order. There is a small additional charge for Deep Red. Please see pictures provided for examples.
The first run is of limited numbers so if you wish to secure your own Skylight AR101/15, I urge you to contact me without delay...Deposits have been placed and the list is growing!
