Ordering, Shipping and Consignment Information

Brayebrook Observatory is a not-for-profit organization. We do however sell items that are of use to amateur telescope makers, particularly those involved in the restoration or reconstruction of old and antique telescopes. We can also offer advice and assistance where necessary. Products useful in the restoration of brass & steel or iron work such as Tourmaline, Haematite, Tung oil, various lacquers including xylene paints, thinners, bases and pigments and waxes, may be purchased at trade prices plus shipping and insurance. Please include your country of origin when inquiring about items.  I will be able to give you accurate shipping rates and tell you if your requested item is still available.  Some of these items are only consignable within the UK. Please see the
Restoration & Restoration Techniques page for further information about the use of these products.

You will need to enquire for prices which will be quoted in UK stirling.  All items except broken ones have a 10 day no-hassle money back guarantee.

Payment may be made by cash, money order, cashier's cheque or personal cheque (if you don't mind waiting for the cheque to clear.) I accept either US or Canadian dollars; UK stirling or Euro currencies.

All buyers with credit cards have the option of using the PayPal.com services for payment. Most countries are approved for overseas credit card payments -

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.

Shipping and insurance are additional to listed prices.  Shipping within the UK is via Consignia ParcelForce "Priority" within England, Scotland and Wales.  I try to ship most overseas items using Consignia's ParcelForce Worldwide small packet air postal services.  Make sure you specify whether you would like insurance on your order. 

For those resident within the UK we can also supply small quantities of special fasteners such as BSF & BSW brass bolts, nuts & washers, and small(ish) pieces of brass, phosphor branze or steel flat, bar or strip. Stearic grease, used for helical and rack&pinion focusing mechanisms (responsible for giving a "silky feel") can be supplied in small 25 gram (1 ounce) jars. If you have questions about this service, and if you wish to make use of it or simply want to discuss restoration or restoration projects, send me an e-mail -
