Welcome to Green Witch Telescopes & Binoculars
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.
