A FEW OF THE THINGS WE'RE SHOWING YOU...
- YES...the rings are really there! THIS is the favourite of everybody taking our sky tours. Right now the rings are as wide open as they can be with the dark 'Cassini Division' in between.
The best object through a telescope ever. We'll show you the giant planet's unique banded clouds, its Red Spot you've heard so much about and thrill at the 4 main moons circling the planet.
Huge craters on the Moon, double stars... NOTHING prepares you for this close up view, especially when you can capture it all with your phone camera. The main planets Saturn, Jupiter and Mars are especially clear and stunning (when risen) with star clusters and nebula always sitting there just waiting for you. Wanna see stars being born? Just ask!
"An Amazing 2-Hour Experience!"
Here's what they're saying....
* Absolutely amazing -we learnt so much and Dave is brilliant. It was a great introduction to the stars and amazing for a first timer to see actual planets through the large telescope. Do yourself a favour - take this tour. It's worth every cent! Maureen Rivenell, Port Macquarie NSW
*This evening event changed forever how I will see the night skies. We got to see four planets (Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) and different star clusters. After the presentation Dave stayed a little longer and answered all our questions. Highly recommended, especially for families. Barry and Kita Sorenson, Taree NSW
"Man, it absolutely blew my mind to get this personal tour of the sky with Dave's large telescope! It was MUCH better than I ever expected. It was amazing to see the clarity of the rings around Saturn which got a 'wow' from everyone. My family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the close-up views of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon's huge craters." Jack Pedley. Port Macquarie.
*Thanks Dave for a night we are still moved by! The impact has been huge on our kids, especially those close-up views of the Moon! We saw the rings of Saturn wide open, also Jupiter and took a photo through the telescope. I'm telling my friends about this too! Karen Amato, Wauchope NSW
