We went down a dirt road with a little uncertainty, to find a great experience with great telescopes and one of the most knowledgeable people in the field.

Dress warm! Kevin is passionate about the night skies. We loved it. Not only did we get to see Saturn's rings, Jupiter's moons, Milky Way, stars, collapsing galaxies but his humor and insight made it a unique fun experience. Highly recommend.
