Geraldine Observatory Reviews
What better time to visit the Geraldine Observatory than in the middle of the day, and raining at that. I had read about Peter's observatory, and as I was passing through Geraldine with my 4 year old ... more »
We schrokken van de entreeprijzen van de stargazing-tours in Tekapo. Mailtje gedaan naar Geraldine Observatory en een paar uur later konden we terecht, in ruil voor een zelf te bepalen donatie.

Mailed to Geraldine Observatory and a few hours later we were able, in exchange for a self-determination donation. Peter made time for us free and gave us a lot of explanations about the Milky Way with his two. Through his telescopes we have seen galaxies and planets and are allowed to search for themselves. So personal and passionate, you'll find it almost nowhere!
Paul is a great and very informative host/ guide to the stars.
Peter is such a l lovely and knowledgeable old man who told us a lot about astronomy and let us explore the sky with two of his giant telescopes. We were quite lucky with the sky and were able to see nebulas, the famous jewel box and many more beautiful sky objects. His volunteering commitment to support astronmic research is impressive and with every word he explains, you hear his passion for this science. A simply wonderful night with some other nice and interested people. Clear recommendations.
