About Ad Astra La Palma
Ad Astra is a latin locution that means "to the stars". Our purpose is to honor this name, bringing Astronomy closer to the general public in a pleasant and an entertaining way. Our company has a team of Starlight Guides and Astronomers with a broad experience in scientific popularization. We have advanced and powerful astronomical telescopes for Moon, planet and deep-sky object observation, such as nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. Additionally, we have an astronomical laser pointer and multimedia resources to identify the main constellations, and special filters to watch solar surface phenomena (sunspots, filaments and prominences). We will take you to the borders of the Universe on a fascinating journey where you will discover the mysteries of the Cosmos. We will answer all your questions, doubts and curiosities about Astronomy. What are you waiting for?
