Sky One and Two are easily available in recent re-masterings from Sanctuary (Castle) along with a two-CD compilation Anthology which has tracks from all the albums.
The recent Sanctuary re-masterings sound better than earlier CD versions so buying those cheap in old stock / used is a bit of a false economy.
Sky 3 onwards have all been released on CD but are now deleted, though they often appear on eBay - winning bids over twenty quid are quite common for the later ones.

When the Sanctuary re-mastered "Sky" and "Sky2" CDs came out, they were cheapest from Play.com.
One advantage of one of the earlier versions of "Sky" on CD is that it has "Dies Irae" as a bonus track. An even earlier one (the first, on Ariola) had the movements of "Where Opposites Meet" indexed as separate tracks.
