This is a must do event! Between informative discussions of the various heavenly bodies and the ability to see them, it was a great event. We even got to see the 2 main bands on Jupiter and 4 of its moon. This one excursion will make you want to be an astronomer.

There was a full moon during our visit, so we really didn't have the best star gazing opportunity. One of the best things is that Sedona keeps light pollution at a minimum, so that does help make the stars clearer.

We did Sedona Stargazing at our hotel L'Auberge de Sedona with Mark. He was amazing! He brought two telescopes, binoculars and some other equipment. He is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Great experience!

Stargazer gave us a phenomenal evening of star gazing, and every element of this experience was professional. We LOVED it. We saw the Lovejoy comet (which won't come around again for 11,00 + years), the surface of Jupiter and the Moon, the Andromeda galaxy and much more. Communication prior to the evening was excellent. They followed up promptly and ensures... More

We visited this unpaved area during sunset and returned after dinner. We saw the milky way in its finest, and saw 3 shooting stars in the 15 minutes we spent there. Never seen anything like it before. Excellent.

This was really amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable and you could tell he was enthusiastic about sharing information with us. We saw stuff we've never seen before, even with a telescope. We were in a group with one other couple, which was great because it meant that much more time for each of us at the telescope. I believe... More

The guide made the difference for us. We used evening sky tours and they were great. The person we had as a guide was both a professional and an amateur astronomer.

We were in Sedona for Christmas, so the moonless night sky was brilliant with stars. Sedona is great for gazing as there's little commercial lighting, so long as the sky is clear.

I was impressed by how knowledgeable our "guide" was. He answered questions and explained everything we were looking at. Only thing keeping this from a "5" is that the observation area is right near some houses, and their lights were bright. Didn't bother the stars, but kept readjusting our eyes.

Our astronomer, Dave, was very knowledgeable and balanced the time well between looking at stars through the telescope and explaining constellations and astronomical events while looking at the night sky unaided. Several meteors were also a highlight of the night. I initially had to drag my husband along, but he was really impressed and absolutely enjoyed himself. It was a... More
