If you can't drive in the dark, this is not for you. The drive out to the site is not bad, but it's extremely dark driving back. The star gazing was phenomenal. You are are divided into groups, each led by an experienced astronomer. The views through the 12" telescopes are unbelievable and everyone has the opportunity to look through... More

Awe inspiring. I will never look at the sky in the same way again. Trevor's passion and knowledge engaged us fully. It was a wonderful and most unusual experience combining entertainment and tremendous amounts of information.

Although there were more than 12 people in our group, I still feel it was a great experience. Our astonomer, Trevor, was so knowledgeable, and obviously loves her profession. She made sure we were well informed about the sky that night and the view was magnificent. I would recommend this to anyone who visits Sedona.

Beautiful and educational. 12" Dobsonian scopes. Dress warmly especially in spring. Trevor was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. View site 30 min. from W. Sedona. We viewed two Messier objects (M13 & M57?), three planets and a double star. Spent A little too much time on constellations would have preferred more telescope time. We ran long (1:40) due to Trevor's enthusiasm and... More

We saw things we have never seen before. We saw the rings of Saturn. The bands of Jupiter. Dave pointed out the constellations with a laser pointer, great learning tool. They set things up very well with a chair and blanket for everyone. Would definitely go again.

We just returned and the clear skies were amazing!!!! We drove to an out of the way street, got out of the car and were just awed at how fabulous the star gazing is there. You are at 3500 feet altitude so maybe that makes a difference?

It is a short tour where they show you several planets and constellations. The guides are very knowledgeable and can answer all your questions. Although they provide a blanket, dress warm and take an extra sweater. They also have a pretty cool telescope to gaze at the stars :) I do recommend it.

We had some cloudy nights but our last night was worth the wait... a perfect sky with a touch of light on the mountains.. We dont see that kind of sky - or cliffs, mountains and canyons - in Michigan.

Nightly tours of the heavens. You sign up (by phone, with a credit card) and they text you directions to meet out in the boonies where it's pitch black. The astronomer guide has a 10-inch reflector telescope set up for closeup views of whatever planets, star clusters, etc., are above the horizon at that time and date. You meet a... More

We went on an unseasonably cold night in May but it was well worth it. The day was mostly cloudy but on cue cleared up just past 8:00 PM. The night sky was dazzling, no city lights nearby to obscure our view. Our presenter, Rick Shaffer was entertaining as well as knowledgeable on astronomy and you could tell he had... More
