The Skylight AR101/15

Skylight Telescopes 102F7ED Refractor

See the Skylight AR101/15 & 102F7ED Refractor exclusive TeleVue objective at the International Astronomy Show and offers a complete astro and solar image solution!

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:
• Version 1. This entry level version will be supplied with a 2-speed crayford focuser, holes pre-drilled to accept the superb Televue Starbeam at a later date (if desired).  It is fully blackened & flocked.
• Version 2.  The mid range version is complete with bespoke finder brackets, 40mm brass finder scope, Premium Baader Steeltrack focuser, fully baffled & blackened internally.
• Version 3. This Premium version will be as version 2, but will feature the luxurious Starlight Instruments Feathertouch focuser, brass grab rail & brass counterbalace weight system.
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.

As with my previous Skylight designs, all OTA’s are handmade by me in Wimbledon, Southwest London.

  Ultimately, final prices will depend on chosen options.  
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!
*At this time only the show display models have been completed and the pictures displayed here are taken at those events.  When the first production examples are completed, studio photographs will be supplied.
