We decided a bit last minute to buy the Borrego Night Sky Tour with Dennis. We had one night left in Borrego and we both love learning about space. We rarely get to see stars living in downtown Chicago. It was hands down worth the cost. We ended up with only 4 of us so we were spoiled in being able to ask as many questions as we wanted, and take long looks into space. Pretty awesome to not only see everything, but Dennis is passionate about his work and incredibly knowledgeable. I hope to do it again someday in another season!

We are happy to have found Dennis to allow us to have a night sky tour experience this February in Borrego Springs. We enjoyed the tour quite a bit. Dennis gave us a nice overview of his telescope and a tour of the night sky that we can see with a naked eye, as well as distant galaxies and stars we were able to view with the help of the telescope. Thank you Dennis

My boyfriend fancies being able to look up into the sky and see the stars, which is generally not possible in our part of Illinois. So we booked the trip not knowing what to expect. Dennis gave very easy instructions on how to get there. He explained what we would be seeing, how we were seeing it, and provided feedback to any questions anyone had. We were able to see Venus, some star clusters and a couple galaxies. Depending on the time of year you go, different planets/stars are available to be seen. Dennis was very passionate about his work and his community, and it made the experience unique and special. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for something different that will leave you awestruck!

This was our second stargazing tour with Dennis and it was amazing. We saw so much more than our 1st tour and totally enjoyed ourselves. We had no idea of what was out there and are more amazed each time. Take the tour you won't regret it. Dennis is great, patient, knowledgable and entertaining.
