Green Witch was founded by former staff of the Royal Greenwich Observatory and is committed to providing independent, professional advice and the best equipment. We back this up with friendly after-sales service to make sure you get the best use from your equipment.

Our two consultants have a wealth of experience in professional astronomy but are used to dealing with users of all abilities from absolute beginners through to experts. We know our subject in depth but appreciate how daunting it sometimes appears if you are new to it.

Neil Parker was Head of Technology and Deputy Drirector of the Royal Greenwich Observatory and worked on a range of major telescopes including the Isaac Newton Group in the Canary Islands and the 8-metre Gemini Telescopes now operating on Hawaii and in Chile.

Greenwitch stock and sell only the finest telescopes and binoculars and all accessories you’ll ever want!

Lee Sproats has been a keen amateur astronomer since the age of six and also has a PhD in astrophysics. Lee deals directly with most phone enquiries and visitors, and has a reputation for being extremely well-informed and helpful.

We are both keen nature observers although it has to be said that we are only casual bird watchers. Nevertheless, we do understand and use the equipment regularly and can help you choose the binocu lars or telescope that best suit your needs.

We also offer training in astronomy and the use of equipment such as telescopes and astronomical cameras. We even supply clear skies by renting out the Green Witch House at the Arizona Sky Village.

Many of our customers become regulars and develop a long-term relationship which we value and they find helpful. We aren’t perfect but if we make a mistake or a customer has a problem then we always do our best to sort it out as quickly as we can.

Both our branches have well stocked showrooms

You can come and see-touch-feel a very wide range of astronomical telescopes & accessories, birdwatching binoculars and spotting scopes.

There are nature products, kits and antique replicas, weather stations, books and much more to suit all levels and all budgets.

Both branches DO stock a very large range of products but if there is something in particular you wish to see please contact us before making a journey.

Furthermore, both consultants have a very large amount of experience of using the products we sell which we believe to be important as it will help you choose the right product(s) for your needs.

You will often find that both Neil and Lee take home telescopes, binoculars and related accessories to “play” with so that they ]understand how these products work….helping you!
