We are a global leader in precision optics for astronomy

We design, manufacture and install everything from one-off components to complete optical systems.

Large Precision Lenses

We specialise in customised, tightly-toleranced lens elements from 0.25m to over 1m in diameter, as well as optical assemblies and instruments.

Astronomical Spectrographs

Our range includes the KiwiSpec R4-100 Spectrograph – a multi-fibre feed, high-resolution vacuum Echelle spectrograph which can achieve precision radial velocity measurements of less than 1m per second.

Optical Components and Instruments

We make high-quality mirrors, prisms, filters, cameras, image slicers and turn-key instrumentation for spectrographs, telescopes and other devices.


Custom Solutions

Our solutions include lenses for a United States Navy navigation system and a camera for a proton radiography experiment at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the United States.

Everything is currently within specification, and I have every confidence that the full set of lenses will be on schedule and within specification.
