Plan on 1.5 to 2 hours from the scheduled start time. Actual tour length can vary due to group size, questions to address and viewing conditions. I don't mind if people leave 'early'

restroom facilities are a porta potty. Also it can get quite cold. There is a shed to warm up in but you miss the stars.
