Brands

At Astrograph we specialise in offering premium quality equipment and service. When we choose a brand to offer, it must not only meet our minimum standards for performance, but we must also be able to expect a high level of support from the manufacturer or distributor.

Most of the brands we offer are premium, high end brands that have a reputation for the highest levels of performance. Many of these we represent either exclusively or distribute. Not all the brands we offer are high end, some are lower cost, mainstream products. No matter, they have to meet the same standards for quality and support.

We believe our approach to product choice provides our customers with equipment that will allow them to experience Astronomy at the very highest levels for years to come whether their interest be visual, imaging or scientific.

GSO

GSO

GSO (Guen Sheng Optical) are a Taiwanese optical manufacturer. They are well known for their range of Ritchey Chretien telescopes due them being particularly low cost. GSO products are often rebadged and are the basis for many brands such as Omegon, TS, Astro-Tech, Revelation and many more. Hyperbolic mirrors used by RC's have traditionally been costly to produce. GSO have successfully combined mass production with good quality to offer reflective optics that provide significant value. Additionally, GSO have also been able to bring carbon fibre truss construction to mass production. As well as Ritchey Chretien's, GSO offers excellent Newtonian and classic Cassegrain optics. The latter make good use of GSO's expertise by combining a parabolic primary (Newtonian) with a hyperbolic secondary (Ritchey Chretien) to provide a scope that offers many of the advantages of the Ritchey Chretien but that offers better performance for visual use and planetary imaging.
