The sky guided tour is at the countryside in the Elqui's Valley, near La Serena city and it lasts about 4 hours including the time to get to the observing point (about an hour from La Serena).When we get there, while we get our eyes get used to darkness, we'll look at the sky at unaided eye to understand our position in the solar system and in the galaxy. When the telescope and our eyes got ready, the stargaze session begins with explanations of the objects we see through the eyepiece. We're going to observe deep sky objects that will help us to understand the stellar evolution, getting a glimpse to the story of the universe. We'll see the emission nebulas where the stars get born. The young and bright stellar open clusters and the the biggest globular cluster in the Milky Way, Omega Centauri and 47 Tuc, only visible from here. Depending on the time of the year, we'll see some lonely ghosts of stars alike to our sun, that died not long ago; the beautiful planetary nebulas. Far away Galaxies will be the final target of the night.
Il tuo host
I'm an astronomy guide. I've been in observational astronomy since 2010 and I've gotten to know the wonders of the southern sky very well and I want you to know it too. I'm very well equipped! I have a high-end computerized 8 inches-aperture telescope, long eye relief eyepieces, two 100º monster-eyepieces wide open windows to the Universe, specialized filters for nebulae and planets to get the best stargazing experience. Astronomy is a huge passion of mine. I really love to show you the objects in my telescope, and explain what are you looking at. The experience will last in your memory for long. I'm also a connoisseur of the area, so I can provide good information of where to go, how much it cost, where NOT TO GO, history and everything you might need.

Dove ti troverai
I'll pick you up from your place, I'll drive you for about 25 minutes into the Equi Valley through the 41 route (route of the stars), then for another 15 minutes we'll head to the south through the "Quebrada de Talca" zone to my personal observation spot. It's a lonely and quiet place by the road, with a great horizon and really deep dark sky, which is perfect for the stargazing session.
