Private Star Parties

Tell me what you are interested in and we will work something out.

Here are a few examples:

Beginning Star Party

  • For a family or similar group of up to 15 participants in a nearby Portland park

  • 2 hour minimum

  • $300 + $100 for each additional hour*

  • I give an introduction with a naked-eye tour of the sky highlighting planets, bright stars, and constellations.

  • Then I have one telescope per five participants to look at planets, stars, and deep sky objects such as clusters, nebulae, and galaxies.

  • I will have at least one helper.

  • We can then go more in-depth on a theme​

    • constellations with mythological stories from a variety of cultures

    • how to use a telescope

    • finding deep sky objects

    • Galileo’s six great discoveries of 1610

    • The Messier objects

    • Many more themes possible

*Small Family/Group Option

  • For a small family or group any of the options can be selected with the price cut in half:

    • $150 for first two hours + $50 for each additional hour​

    • I will bring just one telescope and no helpers.

Intermediate Star Party

  • For a family or similar group of up to 15 participants in a nearby Portland park who has already done the Beginning Star Party

  • 2 hour minimum

  • $300 + $100 for each additional hour

  • The leader of your group and I meet to decide the focus and theme of this star party

 

Darker Sky Star Party

  • For a family or similar group of up to 15 participants at a darker sky location within an hour of downtown Portland.

  • 2 hour minimum

  • $300 + $100 for each additional hour

  • The leader of your group and I meet to decide the focus and theme of this star party
