Spencer's Observatory has a retractable roof that exposes a gateway to the dark skies that blanket the Tucson Mountain Park-West. Our personal guide leads gazers of all levels through a sky tour using a Celestron 14" SCT telescope on a GoTo Mount, a 10" Meade LX200 SCG telescope, and a Piggy Back 4" Stellar View Refractor. Conveniently located down the road from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Cat Mountain Station, next to Cat Mountain Lodge, a bed and breakfast in the desert. Open year-round by reservation to the public – discounted for Lodge guests.
