Skylight Telescopes: an update.
It’s been some time since I last advertised here, so I felt an update was in order...
The Skylight F15m: to be announced (see below)
The Skylight F13: See this all-new refractor for the first time at
The original Skylight F15: I have several objectives remaining that were never used in the first run, and I am currently finishing what will be the last of the original run of the Skylight F15. There will be a second run at some point, but this will almost certainly be built around a new objective lens. This could well mean some design changes in the next version.
Skylight refractors will always remain pure to this design goal; being a fluid combination of Victorian design and modern materials. With this in mind, they will never be manufactured in large numbers, and will only be built when appropriate materials are available (they will not be built with sub-standard components).
Skylight refractors now have a new finder! Feedback I have received from users of the Skylight
F15 indicated that the original finder’s narrow field of view could be improved
upon. With this in mind, the new finder is a modern 8x40
optical set, which I have re-manufactured into a more design-friendly body,
with more appropriate dimensions. This product is still undergoing testing, and pictures will follow soon...
This finder will be offered to all F15 owners as a free exchange if they should choose to swap it for the original version.
