First off, the crew was very kind and full of info. The telescope was amazing as well as the history surrounding the site. Something we would definately do again.
Twenty of us enjoyed a short trip around the multi-telescope facility, a light dinner with a video and talk demonstrating the immensity of our universe and a couple of hours taking turns looking at stellar and interstellar objects though a respectable size (32 inch) reflecting telescope. Our host and his assistant were pleasant and professional but not fully trained as... 更多
Our first visit to this fabulous facility, and I hope not our last. Great, gorgeous drive through multiple climate zones. Make sure to stop at the overlooks for the scenery. Tour begins at 3:00 so don't be late. Well worth the price of admission - over 5 hours, great guides, amazing views, dinner and photography, beautiful sunset and, of course,... 更多
As an early Christmas present to my son and family, we spent a wonderful evening, led by Travis, gazing through binoculars, and the 32 inch Schulman telescope. Grandchildren ages 8, 9, and 11 enjoyed the entire program, despite the chilliness of the event. It reached the low 30's, so dressly as warmly and layered as you can. This was my... 更多
A lot of fun and a great adventure into the past!! The drive is beautiful. We booked on a near new moon and the sky was lit up by the stars. Travis, Bill, and Barry were great hosts. Food was good and filling. 16 year old son was intrigued the whole time. Dressing warm is not a joke if you... 更多
The drive passes through four climate zones and it gets very cold at night at the top. The presentation is very informative and interesting... and 99% correct. (Sorry, I have a lot of astronomy knowledge.) The telescope shown is 32" diameter, the largest public access telescope available. You will see a variety of what is up at the time: We... 更多
We've been to Kitt Peak and wanted another taste of star gazing, and this place didn't disappoint. Our guide, Travis, was very knowledgeable and had a very nice way of explaining complicated astronomical stuff in a non-complicated way. It was so amazing to see Mars, Uranus, M31 (The Andromeda Galaxy), M45 (The Pleiades) and lots of other objects directly through... 更多
What a great way to spend an evening. Speechless. Great presentation and information. Enthusiastic presenter. Take plenty of layers of clothes. Even on a 90 degree day in Tucson, layers and hoodie were needed on Mt. Lemmon.
If you have more than just a casual interest in the heavens, you should not miss this five-hour chance to learn and view what's out there. Rob did a really good of presenting the heavens! For me, it is more than I can comprehend. I just love to see stars and planets and the Milky Way, and I'm privileged to... 更多
The excellent presentation by Rob captured my attention and imagination even though I don't know much about astronomy. It made watching the sun set and looking through the telescope even more enjoyable. It was as cold as they warned so I was glad to have hat, gloves and down vest. The whole experience was a fascinating and I will look... 更多
