About
We select visually stunning space objects. This is not your usual Star Party where we only look at the top 10 easy and bright deep space objects. We provide a stimulating variety of obscure and well known space curiosities designed to open your mind to the mystery and romance of astronomy. We restrict attendance to 12 people per telescope and bring up to two 11” telescopes per session. Our equipment is beyond question, well maintained and performing at the optimum, limited only by atmospheric conditions. We ask you to focus the image for your personal eyesight. Unlike other stargazing experiences where only one eyepiece is used all night, we use a variety of high quality eyepiece optics to reveal delicate details and obscure overlooked aspects. Novices and experienced stargazers would enjoy the high quality views, carefully selected list of objects and the star lore narrative on the history of Astronomy told by an experienced Astronomer.
