Alex was genuinely interested in helping us all learn more about his interest in the heavens. It was clear from the outset that he was extremely knowledgeable and keenly anxious to share what he knows. We feel very grateful that we had an exceptional night...More
My wife and I have been on an astronomy tour before. It’s something we love. Alex does an outstanding job and brings the night sky to life. Groups are small so everyone has time with the telescope. The best thing is that Alex only does...More
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
Very unique outing and a nice change of pace from biking, 4x4, hiking and the heat of the day to chill out and get to learn more about astronomy, telescopes, and 'The Big Dipper'. Alex is great about setting up expectations-- this is not pointing...More
Our first stargazing experience was a memorable one!
Alex is an outstanding guide - patient, knowledgeable, and entertaining.
Small group (about 8 or so) which made for an intimate, personal experience.
Alex answered all our questions and we never felt rushed.
We saw amazing things...More
As part of a family vacation we were looking for other things to do besides rafting and horseback riding and found Alex's website through a Google search. Alex was upfront and honest about what to expect. He even said if they skies aren't clear he...More
Signed up for this tour on a whim, not really that interested in astronomy. What a delightful surprise. Alex is extremely knowledgeable and a born teacher. By the end of the evening I had seen things I had only heard about on "Star Trek" 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
My friend and I had a wonderful night. I had never looked through a telescope before. Impossible to imagine can that you can see something 35 million light years away. Jupiter and it's moons were awesome . Alex is personable & explains what you are...More

The meet location is a well lit parking lot (with restrooms) midway between downtown Moab and the entrance to Arches National Park. The meet time depends on sunset & weather (on my Oct trip it was 7:30PM). Reservations are indeed required and fees apply (~$40/pp cash). The practical size limit for groups is 8-10 participants; however, the website states that groups of 2-40 are accompanied. From the meet location it takes about 15-20 min to drive (in your own car) to the viewing location. The program lasts approximately 90 min. Individual viewing time at the telescope varies, but it does not feel “rushed.” Recommend reviewing the FAQs on the official website for additional details.
