Updated Coronavirus Statement 14th October 2021

Updated Covid-19 Statement 14th October 2021

The Widescreen Centre's showroom is CLOSED to all visitors for the time being. We will review the situation in spring 2022 with a view to reopening by appointment. Currently, pre-arranged collection ONLY of fully pre-paid orders is possible but we will need to know in advance when you will collect.

We are otherwise operating normally with web and telephone sales and are receiving goods and despatching orders every day by DPD. Stock levels have recovered significantly. However we are short staffed and very busy so please bear with us until we can get back to you.

Our telephone hours are Monday-Friday 10am - 4pm. Our phone lines are closed on Saturdays, Sundays & Bank Holidays. Online orders can be placed 24/7 at www.widescreen-centre.co.uk.  If you can't get through to us please send an email to sales@widescreen-centre.co.uk.

We thank you for your ongoing support and custom. We look forward very much to resuming normal operations when the time is right, including opening the showroom, restarting our usually very busy events schedule - which brings us face to face with you, our customers - and welcoming you back in person.

Please Stay Safe and Clear Skies.
Simon & Elena

New William Optics RedCat 71 APO Astrograph Telescopes are in stock now!

This is a larger aperture and the same fast f/4.9 relative of the highly successful RedCat 51 model but is still small and light.  The RedCat71 telescope has an aperture of 71mm and focal length of 348mm (f/4.9) and uses a Petzval optical design which provides a flat 45mm image circle without any additional flattener meaning it can be used with sensors up to full-frame size.
