Welcome to Green Witch Telescopes & Binoculars
WELCOME TO GREEN WITCH'S NEW WEBSITE
Welcome to our new web site which we hope you will enjoy. It has been designed for ease of use and navigation as well as being mobile-friendly. Behind the scenes it will be simpler for us to operate, maintain and update, leaving us more time to spend with you, whether you visit one of our branches, email or phone us.
Over the last year Lee at Green Witch North has been developing, testing and populating a new look for Green Witch's website and online shop......and we are now proud for it to go live.
Our new website has been designed to be very easy to maintain, navigate and use. We are able to add new and exciting products quickly for you to keep up-to-date on the latest developments from astronomy, nature and weather. For our initial launch we have added the most popular products to our website and more will be added in due course. If in the meantime you cannot find a particular item please do contact us as it is likely we have not got around to adding it, but we can certainly obtain it for you.
The new online shop is also VERY mobile friendly making searching and buying from a smartphone or tablet easy indeed - go on give it a go and see how easy it is!
We will also be implementing a new helpdesk system that will allow you to track your queries to either of the Green Witch branches.
We welcome any constructive feedback on our new website and we hope you enjoy using our new online shop.
On a personal note, I would like to thank and congratulate Lee on the work he has put into the new site. The old one was largely my creation, so I know how much work is involved. The new site is Lee's creation and is a big improvement. Take a little time to get to know it and I am sure you will enjoy using it. Neil Parker, Gransden September 2014.
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, Neil Parker and Dr Lee Sproats, have a huge 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 (Green Witch South) is the founder and managing director of Green Witch. He was Head of Technology and Deputy Director 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.
- Dr Lee Sproats (Green Witch North) has been a keen amateur astronomer since the age of 7 & holds a 2.1 Honours Degree in Astronomy and also was awarded a PhD in Astrophysics of Infrared and Optical Astronomy of Cataclysmic Binaries from the Mullard Space Science Laboratory (both from Uni. Coll. London). He has used telescopes on Hawaii, Arizona, La Palma as well as the Parkes and 5km East-West Array at Narrabri in Australia. Lee primarily deals with internet orders and most of the email and phone enquiries and visitors, and has a reputation for being extremely well-informed and helpful.
Furthermore, both consultants have a very large amount of experience of using the products we sell which we believe to be very 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!
We do hope you will enjoy dealing with us.
