If you already know your stuff with stargazing and just couldn’t fit your telescope into your luggage or if you just haven’t had the chance to buy your own telescope, Wyoming Stargazing has got you covered. We have a limited number of portable and easy to use telescopes that you can rent from us for just one evening or for a whole week. You can rent telescopes that are great for night time stargazing to view the Moon, planets, and deep space objects, or telescopes that can be used for solar astronomy during the day to see sunspots, solar prominence, and more.
The night time stargazing telescopes that we rent are Classical Dobsonian telescopes with 10 inch primary mirrors (pictured top right). They all have a Telrad Spotting Scope attached to them, which makes pointing the telescope towards objects much easier!
The solar telescopes that we rent are Coronado h-alpha telescopes and iOptron Solar 60 telescopes.Each telescope rental comes with:
In combination with the accompanying Smartphone App this newly developed star viewer shows the stars with a wealth of information and fantastic images. Digital information is merged with the image of the real night sky. You are, therefore, not looking at the display, but at a live image of the real starry sky!

Wyoming’s Stargazing’s Dark Sky Pavilion (pictured below) was designed by local artist Natalie Clark and designer Jakub Galczynski. The Pavilion is a robust, inflatable, and weatherproof structure that is great for sleepovers, birthday parties, BBQs, or any festive occasions. You can rent the Pavilion as an outdoor gathering space during the day or as an over-sized tent for backyard camping with space for up to 20 people at night.
Wyoming Stargazing will deliver, set-up, and take down the Pavilion for you. Space requirements are 30 ft x 30 ft of flat, smooth ground.
Wyoming Stargazing's Digital Planetarium System (pictured on the right) is a portable space theater that brings the Universe right to your finger tips. See detailed drawings of all the constellations and watch them move through the sky. Fly through the Solar System and zoom in to amazing detail on planets, moons, and comets. Then, explore deep space and check out galaxies, globular clusters, nebulae, and more. You can also choose from thousands of full dome movies about astronomy and almost anything else. The Planetarium is mainly used indoors for up to 30 people at a time, but with the addition of the Dark Sky Pavilion it can be used outdoors as well.
Wyoming Stargazing will deliver, set-up, and take down the Digital Planetarium System for you. Indoor space requirements are 16 ft x 6 ft of flat ground with 15 feet of ceiling clearance.Rental Pricing
