Alex has a passion for astronomy and teaching and it shines. This was not just a viewing event, but a small group interactive star experience that all levels of prior astronomy knowledge (and ages) enjoyed. His impressive telescope zeroed in on both close planets and...More

This was an excellent, informative, educational tour of the skies. Alex took us to a spot not far from Moab that was dark and one could see the stars so well. He was very knowledgeable about astronomy and the telescope was awesome. Our 10 and...More

I took my Dad for his birthday and the experience did not disappoint. First of all, Moab is an exceptional location for stargazing. The night we went was clear and we could see bright stars everywhere, literally from horizon to horizon, across the entire sky....More
