Alex was very knowledgeable and had a great approach to explaining the universe and the objects in the sky to non-science people. Even though it was just my mom and I for the night we went, he took the time to find the clearest spot that night in Moab and gave us a long lasting experience exploring the dark skies!... More

Alex is a fun guy and he is full of tidbits for the kids or for those who know nothing about astronomy. Looking at the moon was great; the other stuff -- star clusters and whatnot -- was less interesting. The evening moves at a snail's pace when there are too many people. Every time Alex repositioned the telescope, It... More

Thanks so much for your review and for coming out to the program! It sounds as though you didn't enjoy yourself and for that I am truly sorry. I run a program that is usually very active but does depend on the questions, ideas, comments and the interaction between myself and my guests. I do have quite a few amateur... More

Alex was a great character and did a nice job leading us around to some great sites. We saw the things we wanted to see very efficiently. The astronomy trip up onto the top of the buttes on the way out to Dead Horse Point was good for us. He has nice equipment and told good stories. Even though our... More

Alex the owner / guide was very professional and knowledgeable. We drive to a secluded area near Dead Horse State Park, with his high powered Telescope. Extremely educational. I truly will never look at the stars and galaxy the same. The night sky was breath taking. I never imagined seeing Nebula, galaxies, Jupiter with such clarity. Worth the experience. My... More

We did this astronomy evening on our first night of our week-long vacation in Moab. Worth every penny and my 14 yr old son thought it was amazing to see so many stars, galaxies, and planets. Alex was very informative and had a great sense of humor. His knowledge of the stars and local history was impressive. His equipment was... More

This was so much fun to see and to think that you can look at this anytime and enjoy the idea of the history of it.

Redrock astronomy did a great job with the tour. Alex was a great guide, very informative and entertaining. We have done this twice now, I do like the location north of town better than the location south of town. There was less traffic going by at the north location.

My kids are learning about astronomy in school and I'm glad that Alex made time for us. His quality telescope was neat to use and the evening was informative.
