Important Information

  • The starting time depends on the sunset time, so it will change with the seasons
  • The exact meeting point depends on the wind direction, as the telescope is more than 2 meters high and needs the area with the least wind, as such the activity provider will send you the GPS coordinates for the meeting point
  • If the weather conditions are not good for observation, it can be postponed for the next day or you can get a refund
