Stargazing at Sterland
For a more personal stargazing experience at ‘Sterland’, a privately owned and managed establishment, contact Jurg Wagener of Kambrokind. Bookings for this very popular activity are still essential to avoid dissapointment.
The show at Sterland starts at 20:00 lasting two hours. The stargazer is first treated with an indoor presentation on a three meter big screen explaining all the constellations and sizes in the universe.
Inside the dam are numerous posters of Astronomy and books to be read. After that the stargazers are taken outside to the Muisbos Amphi theatre and first treated with an explanation of how to find South, with the aid of the Magellan Clouds, Southern Cross and other stars. They make use of a very powerful laser so that each stargazer can see what they are talking about.
All the relevant constellations, stars, planets and objects to be observed are then explained before looking through the eye piece of the telescope.
At present they make use of 5 x 11 inch (280mm) Celestron Go-To telescopes, each with its own GPS. Each telescope is operated by a knowledgeable person. Every stargazer gets enough time to enjoy the object to be seen. The show normally lasts two hours.
