    What Are Astro Gloves?

Astrogloves are made from durable neoprene material for warmth and fit. They feature double-layered spandex backs for breathability and flexibility

These comfortable and practical gloves are made to last and were designed by an astronomer, Martin Hall. The gloves are cut in such a way they cover up to the tips of the thumb, index and middle fingers, leaving enough available to make those all those careful and necessary mechanical adjustments. I popped on my news gloves last week and I’m so glad I did – simply because they work!!  I could actually feel everything I touched.

With the tips of my fingers and thumb exposed I could change eyepieces with ease, adjust focus and of course access my email on my iphone in the slow periods, all without removing the gloves. A big bonus for me was being able handle our touch screens, laptops and cameras. This was a big and welcome surprise.

Astrogloves are a family owned business based in Hertfordshire. Amateur astronomers themselves, Martin and Hannah are part of the astronomy community and know it’s often the coldest nights that give the clearest skies. Get your hands on a pair for £24.99 with FREE DELIVERY worldwide. Visit the website see see heaps more!
