Looking at the night sky through the telescope was just one part of the evening. Seeing the stars was really interesting, but just talking to Dan is easily just as interesting as looking at the stars.

They’re kind, nice and friendly. Although we couldn’t understand all of their words but they’re patient. Beautiful views and spent a good time with them.

Daniel was a nice host and he has a real passion for the sky and the stars. He mad us jump into his passion. Very nice experience. However we were thinking that the evening would be in the wild but it's near a cafe in town. Still recommend that experience 👍
