One lucky guest will go home with a new Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerized Telescope. It comes with free instructions for setup and operation by one of the Fountain Hills Star Dudes.
The 6-inch aperture has an excellent light-gathering ability that provides impressive views of the Moon and planets, along with deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula. A fully automated GoTo mount with a database of 40,000+ celestial objects automatically locates and tracks objects for you.
