You know what they say? The stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas! Ok so while San Antonio may not have been the exact place that song was talking about. As a San Antonio native I have spent many, many hours stargazing at some pretty amazing spots all through this state. Now some of this I did kind of stumble across myself, but many of these places were actually shared with me by some of my fellow stargazers. Now I want to pay that forward and share some of my favorite places to go stargazing in San Antonio. Just a heads up I am also going to be listing some places that are a little bit of a drive. So if you want to go on a stargazing road trip, you will get a huge kick out of these places. Also, remember to bring a portable power for your telescope as well as an astronomy chair
Can’t get enough of Star Wars and looking for something fun to do other than watching all the movies again? Well, why not gather some friends or family for a little game night fun and enjoy some of the awesome Star Wars board games that you can buy right now!
Astronomy is awesome. There is nothing I like better than getting out there at night with my telescope (remember to bring your telescope portable power!), a good supply of snacks and if I am feeling extra cool, I will even have some good tunes as well. I am the kind of person that likes to make a real night of it when I am looking at the stars. But standing for hours on end or sitting on one of the fold up chairs from the kitchen can really spoil a night of star gazing. An adjustable astronomy observing chair is what you need. Well do not worry as I was lucky enough to get to check out some of the best observing chairs on the market right now. Me and my butt are putting each one through its paces and I will let you know what one I liked best at the end.
As a keen amateur astronomer I have had the fortune to try out some of the best telescopes on the market. I genuinely do love this hobby and it is something that I feel more people should give a go. While a first time astronomer may want a more modest telescope. For those who already have a love for the stars and planets, you will want something a little more powerful, awesome and generally more spectacular. Well the good news is I was able to try out two of the more high end telescopes recently and I really put them through their paces. So just down below I am putting the Celestron NexStar 8 SE Telescope and the Meade 8-Inch Advanced Coma-Free Telescope head to head!
Amateur astronomy using the best portable telescope is something that is getting more and more popular. When you can see planets at their most clearest is actually now something that is featured on most major news outlets these days and it has seen a spark in public interest in outer space. It is a lot of fun getting outside with your telescope, finding the perfect spot and then looking at a planet. It really is an amazing feeling and it does make you feel very small in the universe….. until your power runs out of course! That is why today we are helping you find the best telescope battery box to make sure you can keep on looking at the stars. This way you can explore the stars and take as much time as you need.
