To process your payment, click on the “Pay with a debit or credit card, or PayPal Credit” link below the log-in box.

ATTENTION: To tell me the date you wish to reserve, pause a moment on Paypal’s review transaction page and click on the “note to seller” link below my mailing address. This action will open a text box where you can send a message.

Cancellation and Refund policies

In the event of a late cancellation or no-show on a night that has been confirmed, no refund will be granted.

Leisure Clients:

  • If a Leisure client cancellation is made with 5 days notice, full payment will be returned.
  • For all Leisure client cancellations with less than 5 days notice, 50% of the total will be returned.
  • For late cancellations occurring 48 hours or less before a tour start time, no refund will be granted.


  • Group cancellations with less than 30 days notice forfeit the $100 deposit.

Weather Challenges:

I work diligently to determine if a guided night sky tour is possible when there are questionable weather conditions. If necessary, I make a call 90 minutes before the scheduled start time to cancel or reschedule. If you do not hear from me, please expect the Astronomy Adventure to be ‘ON’ as planned. Northern New Mexico, with its mountainous terrain, provides a good example of what scientists and meteorologists call ‘micro-climates’. Don’t get psyched-out. If the sky appears cloudy or overcast above Santa Fe, please do not assume the same is true for the dark site.

If a guided night sky tour is not possible due to inclement weather or complete overcast, I will attempt to reschedule the tour for the next possible date.

When a group or leisure client pre-emptively cancels before I can make a careful determination about weather, such cases are handled as a no-show and no refunds will be granted.
