Astronomy on the Colorado Plateau

( and sometimes beyond )

Explorapedia has a small collection of telescopes and cameras. Our primary astronomic instrument is a Celestron 14-inch telescope which will probably remain our largest telescope. The second largest is a Celestron 9.25-inch telescope of the same basic design. It also has a full aperture solar filter. The third instrument is a 5 inch refractor. All are portable. On occasion we conduct star parties and when that occurs we will post the schedule on the events page.
