About me


BelOptik Oliver Smie is a small business and was founded in 2009.

The company name is composed of Bel and Optics. Optics comes from ancient greek and means "science of light". Bel- is the short name of a south germanic god "Belenus- The bringer of light". It symbolizes a creative force. This is similar to the tradition of the Bible: "Let there be light- and there was light".

I'm an amateur astronomer and active observer the sun, so I offer development, building and selling optical devices and accessories for safe sun observation. Other optical solutions or mechanical components are available on request.
