What to Expect

Let us come to your location or suggest our own. We’ll entertain you and your guests by sharing all that the fantastic night skies have to offer: from colorful stars, stellar clusters, planets, star-forming nebulae, Earth-orbiting satellites, distant galaxies and more with the power of an Apochromatic Refracting Telescope on a specialized German Equitorial Tracking Mount.


A stargazing program with us gives you individualized attention from our enthusiastic instructor, allowing you to finally get answers to all of the questions you’ve ever had about the Universe. There’s little-to-no wait time to look through our telescopes, which means that during the evening we’ll be able to show you even more of the extraordinary objects in the sparkling night sky!
