Have you seen the Milky Way? The Rings of Saturn? The spiral arms of distant galaxies? Come and discover the night sky the way it was meant to be seen. Located only 24 minutes from Yarmouth, in North America’s first certified Starlight Tourist Destination as designated by the Starlight Foundation the Deep Sky Eye Observatory has both an outdoor viewing platform and an indoor 9-foot dome that houses a Celestron 14″ Edge HD telescope on a CGE Pro mount. Coupled with dark skies, it allows us to peer into deep space, providing an unforgettable experience!

Bring along your camera/smartphone, attach it to the telescope and snap a picture of the Moon or planets.
