All-Star Telescope

RASC Sponsor All-Star Telescope opened in 2006 with the mission of helping people discover the wonders of the night sky. Located in the country north of Calgary, All-Star Telescope offers numerous observing events at their dark sky location and organizes an annual star party in New Mexico. As a member of the Calgary RASC, Ken joined with others in building several Dobsonian telescopes and spent a year in Africa with his 12" Dobsonian before opening All-Star Telescope with his wife, Bev. Regular "Observer Nights" are open to the public to share views with others and to meet with other astronomy enthusiasts. In recent years All-Star Telescope has also specialized in astrophotography, offering "Imager's Nights" for hands-on learning, workshops on imaging and processing, and online instructional videos. As regular observers and imagers, Ken and staff regularly use and test the equipment that they sell and can usually offer knowledgeable and experienced advice to those beginning and progressing in the hobby.

All-Star Telescope's website offers a wealth of information on astronomy with informational and instructional videos as well as the opportunity to order online. With a toll-free number (1-866-310-8844), and timely responses to e-mail, we offer advice and support for your purchases.
