For a great introduction to birdwatching at an affordable price point, try our selection of Hawke spotting scopes. If you're after the best optical quality money can buy, look no further than the exceptional range of Swarovski spotting scopes.

Our range of telescopes are perfectly suited to the budding stargazer, including powerful Sky-Watcher telescopes and beautiful, traditional solid brass Helios telescopes.

What is a Newtonian telescope?

A Newtonian telescope uses a system of mirrors to gather light, as opposed to a lens used in many other optics. As the light enters the top of the telescope tube, it is reflected by a primary mirror at the lower end, this is then deflected at a 90 degree angle by a plane mirror out of the side of the tube, and into the focuser and eyepiece.

What is a Dobsonian telescope?

A Dobsonian telescope comprises a Newtonian telescope mounted on a Dobsonian mount, as popularized by John Dobson in the 1970s. Using the Alt-Azimuth principal, the telescope can pivot in altitude and rotate in azimuth. This allows for a telescope that can be easily moved when needed to but fixed securely as necessary.
