  • Truly one of the best off the beaten path things you can do in Estes. The high elevation makes for amazing star gazing and the observatory just opens the sky up even more. The telescope is huge for its class and the guides are passionate and extremely knowledgeable about their craft. On top of all this, the observatory is there to get local kids into science so donations made for the star gazing service go to a great cause. Really great experience. Be prepared to be up late!
  • Mike was amazing. Not only does he have a large knowledge of stars but he also shows you the passion he has for them. Great visit with my family
  • The evening was simply amazing. We booked time (6 members of my family) and learned so much in our 2 hours. The depth of knowledge and care that has been put into this incredible resource is nearly as vast as the skies we observed. I saw the Andromeda galaxy through the telescope - how incredible is that? Mike was so willing to answer any question and shared so many stories about the stars, the galaxies and how we are all so much smaller and less significant than anyone can imagine. Anyone who is passing through Estes Park should spend the time and effort to book an evening at the observatory.
  • What an awesome time! Mike is a wealth of knowledge, and really made this a wonderful experience! Highly recommended! Make sure to Email him, and go check it out.
  • Great place to visit. Mike has a wealth of knowledge! Loved the visit and seeing the stars.
