We will commit a meeting point to pick you up and go to the observation zone. Once we are already installed, the night equipment is borrowed to you (red light lamps, binoculars and maps). The workshop to install a telescope begins before sunset (It might be your own telescope if you bring it with you). Once it is already dark, we will start a tour of the constellations and celestial mechanics, pointing with lasser the name of the stars and the main astherisms. After basic constellations are shown, we will perform a tour of the stars evolution while you see the object in the binoculars. Once we talk a little bit about your doubts and questions, we get back to your hotel.
I am member of several astronomy clubs since 20 years ago and winner of several Messier Marathons. I traveled to Kansas in order to witness the solar eclipse and here in Mexico seen the last Venus transit of this century. I love stargazing and read about science divulgation like Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking and Brian Greene. I have experience in trekking, rock climbing and camping under stars. I took several groups of friends to watch starry nights, explaining constellations and mithology. I am industrial designer working on aerospace industry since 10 years ago.

We are going to "Punta Blanca", a Virgin Beach with Dark Skies where we can see with better quality the shallow and fuzzy objects of the cosmos.
Starry nights depends of clear skies, so we are not responsible for cloudy weather. All equipment is temporary borrowed and guest is responsible for brokes due to wrong use.
