YOUR GROUP will SEE TO THE STARS
Astronomy Night and Day's telescopes are both large and small. Depending on your event and location, Dan will select the right telescope for your group.
Both telescopes are computer controlled, which makes observing much more fun! Once Dan locks in the specific view, the telescopes track the movement in the sky so there no need for constant adjusting - and that means more viewing time.
Astronomy Night and Day's large telescope is a 20" (diameter of mirror at the bottom) Starmaster. Starmasters are considered one of the finest amateur telescopes in the world. They're handmade near Ft. Scott, Kansas.
The Starmaster telescope performs best in rural, dark skies. Faint objects such as galaxies, planetary nebula (dying stars) and small comets are outstanding in this telescope.
Astronomy Night and Day's smaller telescope is a 10" Orion. These are large telescopes, yet small enough for you to be able to sit in a chair and comfortably observe.
The smaller Orion telescope is ideal for use in areas with much more ambient light, such as in suburbs and downtown. Yes, even downtown you can see mountains and craters on the moon, rings of Saturn, and moons of both Saturn and Jupiter.
