Have you always wanted a telescope but not been able to justify the expense?

Do you enjoy naked-eye astronomy and want to have a closer look before deciding to take the hobby further?

Do you fancy up-grading your scope, trying astro-photography or using a different mount?


If so, our telescope hire in partnership with The Tring Astronomy Centre could be just the thing for you.

We have various hire packages available, meaning you can have a go without having to shell-out enormous amounts of cash.  There is a fully refundable deposit to cover loss or theft and a small hire charge based on the style of telescope you chose.  You can also pair hire with a Sirius Astronomy tutorial to take full advantage of your chosen hire scope.
