hank you for visiting ISTAR TELESCOPES UK - representing Istar Optical,  producers of  premium quality refractors and accessories at down-to-earth  prices.  

 Istar plans to introduce the widest selection of lens-based optical  systems ever offered by a  single manufacturer - from an inexpensive,  medium-sized achromatic telescope through to  large Fluorite, Lanthanum  and ED glass Apochromats, Super Apochromats, multi-element  Astrographs, correctors and reducers.

 There are several new products close to production, including two versions of Super Achromatic and Semi Apochromatic doublets offering 30 and 50 percent reduction in chromatic aberration, and substantially smaller spot size, compared to most common achromats on the market.  

 

All ISTAR products are individually made, not mass produced.  Each telescope and optical system is custom-designed and hand built.

Also available is custom optical design and manufacture for specific customer projects.

ISTAR's sole UK distributor, Peak2Valley Instruments, will be happy to discuss your requirements in detail.

 

SUPERB PACKAGE DEALS AVAILABLE FOR ANY ISTAR OTA WITH iOPTRON, SIDERES, SKYWATCHER,
