TELESCOPE HIRE & PRIVATE STARGAZING EXPERIENCE NIGHTS ACROSS ENGLAND & WALES

COVID-19 UPDATE

We are open for business. Telescope hire available via home delivery & collection service, and as collection by appointment from our hire base. We are running our private stargazing experiences using safe social distancing and hygiene measures. At the current time we are having to limit family / friends group sizes to a maximum of six persons to comply with Covid 19 regulations and request that participants wear a face covering.

Dark Sky Telescope Hire rent out high-performance astronomical telescopes for back garden stargazing in England and Wales. We offer dobsonian reflector telescopes from 150mm aperture upwards. Telescopes can be collected from our hire base in Toddington Bedfordshire by appointment only. We also offer a telescope home delivery & collection service across mainland England and Wales. 

Telescopes are manual in operation. The telescope tube fits on to a dobsonian base that rotates through 360-degrees. Tubes are balanced and (depending on the design) secured to the base using a couple of tension bars. The user simply pushes the telescope tube around manually to position the telescope. To find an object / area of sky a 6x30mm or 9x50mm finderscope is attached to the top of the tube for sighting.

A couple of interchangeable lenses are supplied to give you a choice of magnification to play with. You’ll also have a folder of stargazing information that shows you where to aim the telescope to get the best views of celestial objects for the time of year from your back garden.

PRIVATE STARGAZING EXPERIENCE NIGHTS

Experience the wonders of our universe with an astronomer from Dark Sky Telescope Hire as your guide. We bring a telescope and our astronomy knowledge to your back garden or to a nearby stargazing location for a 1-hour or 2-hour private stargazing experience. Your stargazing experience includes a laser-guided tour of the stars and constellations we can see on your chosen night and views through a large telescope of star systems, star clusters, nebulae and distant galaxies far beyond our own. If the moon or planets are visible at the time then we will visit them too with the telescope. For more details on our private stargazing nights please click here.
