About Peak2Valley Instruments



Located in Buxton, in the spectacular Derbyshire Peak District, Peak2Valley Instruments was founded by me, John Timmins, as a specialist supplier of refractor telescopes. We are now enjoying our tenth year of supplying premium telescopes to astronomers worldwide.
Due to rising manufacturing costs, we no longer routinely produce large achromat telescopes but will advise on and quote for any non-standard instrument.
The CFF range is essentially bespoke, as the customer may select specific focal ratios, lens'tuning' to required use, back focus and ancilliary equipment.
It is not the intention to hold large stocks, again as a consideration in keeping overheads low, although at any one time a range of telescopes will be available for demonstration.
As dealers for Altair Astro, Optical Vision, Celestron/Baader, Altair Astro and Opticron/Vixen we can supply telescopes, mounts and components from their product ranges but do not routinely stock. However, we are happy to give advice on mounts and acc andessories and can supply such equipment as a package deal together with any telescope.
As there are no retail outlets, please note that potential customers are welcome to visit our Buxton premises ( appointment only please ) where a demonstration area is available. In addition, it is our intention to visit society events and exhibit the full range offered - see the events page.
The Company
