Brief DescriptionPortable observatory iterpretive astronomy telescope tours
DescriptionOperating September through May

Using a large aperture (24" dia. mirror, 10 foot tall) telescope, a Night Sky Adventures Interpretive astronomy tour shows the natural grandeur of the universe as you can only see with your own eyes. A 24" dia. mirror captures 10,000X more light from faint objects than the unaided eye.

My unique approach to astronomy brings you the universe in real time, this is not a domed light show. No observatory buildings, funky laser show (well maybe a little) or pre-recorded narration gets in the way of the pure enjoyment of the universe. (sometimes I do put on "star" music)

By using such a large telescope, the human eye can see wonders that only a long exposure photograph could capture not so long ago. The 24" reflector alone is impressive even without looking through the eyepiece.

Most guests are surprised at the amount of detail and sheer lushness of objects in the night sky. Night Sky Adventures is truly a memorable experience.

The telescope is fully transportable and has even been set up on rooftop decks (some help required), snow, the bottom of a sink hole, middle of a KOA, parking lots, service roads and on a mountaintop.

With Night Sky Adventures I will bring my expertise and equipment to your lodge, guest ranch, conference center, camp, B&B or home. Special events, camp outs, family reunions, corporate meetings, dinner specials are all wonderful events to enhance with a Night Sky Adventures Universe Tour.

Private groups and tours at your place rates are only $250.00 a night for an exclusive tour of the night sky for at least 2 hours with one of the largest telescopes in New Mexico with full interpretation and entertaining banter.

Night Sky Adventures is an easy choice, if you your event is hosting 20 people, that is just $12.50 a person for guided tours using one of the largest telescopes in NM.

Another option is the "roam in". I set up the telescope(s) in a prominent space and guests at your facility or event drop by and look at a few objects on their way to another part of your event or facility. This is not a planned "tour" and the time frame is as long as people continue to stop at the telescope. Price same as a group tour.

Some past customers include: The Inn at Snakedance Taos NM, Taos Ski Valley, Adobe and Stars B&B, Town of Red River NM, Valles Calderas National Preserve NM, New Mexico State Parks and Singing River Ranch NM and many, many more.
