Equipment

Equipment is only a small portion of what makes an outreach event great. These tools are what help us glimpse the wonders of space. Over the years we have built a collection of equipment to meet the needs of our programs. Our equipment provide the best of portability and usability to ensure it keeps up with our ever growing programs. From visual observation to advanced research imaging our equipment can be configured to your program's needs. Click on the images in the gallery below to learn more about our equipment line up.
