Here are samples of the telescope, binoculars and other optics crafting, repair or refurbishment that we have done in the past.
The Challenge: To clean and aluminise a large 16 inch Cassegrainian design telescope mirror, PLUS this is an exceptionally thick mirror (100mm thickness)
The Outcome: Based on the mirror being taken appropriate care of within the telescope tube assembly the mirror coating will enable a service life of up to Twenty (20) years. This is the global reference standard for all ultra premium quality astronomical aluminisation.
The Challenge: 1940's World War 2 Japanese Naval Binoculars. Ultra Large size 150mm lenses, plus also very robust design and extremely heavy. System as received was inoperable due to gumming up of mechanicals due to congealed lubricants. Also badly worn internal components and also very dirty optics in desperate need of cleaning
The Outcome: Based on the servicing and re build completed for the customer, these binoculars will not need looking at for another fifty years.
The Challenge: Custom design & hand crafting of ultra premium capability Advanced Level Newtonian Reflecting Telescope for a private user.
The Outcome: Based on the system being cared for appropriately, this system will enable a service life of many many decades.
The Challenge: Hand crafting of Replacement Premium Optics for telescope supplied by Astro Optical for a private user.
