*** Our telescope experience includes video-based telescopes with live views on a 4K TV screen, which provide the brightest, most colourful views of space possible PLUS no waiting in line for telescope views – Many people can view at the same time!
We will ALSO have conventional optical telescopes available to look through as well!

This is an outdoor event so please dress warmly!

Please note: This tour does NOT include the Planetarium dome

NOTE: The Telescope Experience is a learning opportunity with weather permitting views of the sky. While we do not need the sky to be completely clear to use our telescopes, we CAN NOT guarantee clear skies. We DO NOT provide refunds if the skies are too cloudy, but this tour includes a “rain check” to re-book for another date. (Just contact us and remind us of the name you booked under and the date you originally booked for and you’re good to go!)

Our cancellation policy is 24 hours – the best in the Rockies!
