Edward R. Byers Company to End Production of Astronomy Mounts After More Than 60 Years in Business

Edward R. Byers Co. has manufactured some of the world’s finest astronomical instruments for over 64 years. Byers driving systems are known worldwide for accuracy and quality.

2019 will be the last year Byers offers his custom-made mounts hand crafted by Ed Byers himself. Each one is unique and considered the “gold standard” of engineering and craftsmanship.

In the 1950’s Ed Byers was the first to offer high-quality sidereal driving systems to the amateur astronomy community.

Ed Byers very quickly became known for excellence in craftsmanship. In addition to the amateur market, Byers made scientific instruments for observatories and universities all over the world as well as for NASA, Jet Propulsion Laboratories, Lockheed, and other government agencies.

The last run of his Series III mounts are now finished and are available for purchase. You can find more information here.
