About Us

David Hinds Ltd are very proud our astronomical heritage. We have been supplying both amateur and professional astronomers, with high quality, precision instruments and superior quality optical systems since 1965. We are still a family owned and run business, large enough to inspire confidence, but small enough to offer friendly service with a personal touch. Today, with our exceptional after sales care and along with our history, we are proud to be a trusted distributor and supplier for some of the leading brands in the global astronomical arena.

At David Hinds Ltd, we don’t just know about astronomy, we are passionate about astronomy. In today’s technology rich market-place we are at the forefront of current trends in the astronomical world. Our customers are becoming increasingly “tech savvy” and are undertaking even more challenging projects. Whether it be a completely new observatory installation, or an accessory to solve a problem, our wealth of product knowledge and technical expertise, together with our access to a range of top global brands, means we are able to provide bespoke solutions to help our customers make the most of their observing time and take their observing experience to the next level.

We also understand how daunting it can be for those just setting out on an astronomical journey. Our sales and support team are there to provide focused, customer centered advice to both entry level astronomers and the more experienced observers, ensuring the best product to suit individual needs. Helping select the next instrument or choose the perfect partner accessory to upgrade an existing set up, we can help guide through a range of options to suit all requirements and budgets.

In 2018 the Royal Observatory Greenwich (ROG) commissioned David Hinds Ltd to supply and install a bespoke telescope instrument package tailored to their exacting specification and requirements in the historic Altazimuth Pavilion. The facility, called the Annie Maunder Astrographic Telescope (AMAT), has led the way to returning the ROG back to being a fully functional and working observatory for the first time in over 50 years. We are proud and honoured to have been involved in this exciting project.

From amateur astronomers of all levels, to prestigious academic establishments like the Royal Observatory Greenwich, David Hinds Ltd is trusted to provide reliable, high quality equipment and superb after sales support. Our dedicated technical support team, are just a phone call or an email away. We believe that our exemplary customer service is key to our success and we do our utmost to give our customers a positive, efficient and enjoyable experience when dealing with us, in the belief that, a satisfied customer will return again and again, and will recommend us to their friends and colleagues.
