We don't actually keep any information about your credit or debit card on our website.

Please note that we will ship to a delivery address that differs from the registered credit/debit card address if you provide additional proof of your addresses. Usually this can be done through sending us a scanned bill (gas, electricity, water or similar) through e-mail, although if this is not enough, we'll advise you about different methods of proving that the order is legitimate. You can see our email address in the top right corner of our website. Because of today's spam issues we won't write it down here. You may also contact us through our spam-free online form.

If you are buying an expensive telescope or the value of your purchase is unusually high (e.g. above £1000), we would recommend you to contacting your card issuer bank before you go to the checkout.


For our customers' higher satisfaction we have implemented a new payment module that enables you to checkout even the most expensive telescopes safely by using one of the biggest payment processing organisation in the U.K.
The PaymentSense modul is now live.
We process payments made by using the following cards:
Maestro, Solo, Visa Debit, Debit MasterCard, Visa Electron, MasterCard Personal, MasterCard World Signia, Maestro International, Visa Personal Credit Card and all types of commercial credit cards from Visa and MasterCard as well as JCB Credit Cards.

American Express is also accepted.

But if you dont have a Paypal account you can still pay through this rout by using your credit or debit card.

All our prices include VAT, although in some cases it may be 0%. E.g. books are rated 0% VAT if they don't include electronic products such as a DVD or CD disk.
If you are ordering from outside the European Union, then you will not be charged VAT at all, as VAT is not applicable to export. Depending on your IP address, you might see our prices shown with or without VAT. If not sure, please contact us.
