Advance planning before visiting this
Region could include a study of the local moon charts before making
a reservation in order to avoid the new moon and to study the
different constellations according to the seasonal changes.
This is also an ideal place to take your own telescope providing
a unique opportunity to use your own equipment.
The major scientific observatories have limited daytime visiting times
and all need Advance Reservations. El Tololo, Las Campanas and La Silla
are the three major scientific observatories in the area and all
have offices in La
Serena which can be contacted in advance (recommended
3 months prior to visit) with the required confirmation and pass
collected the day prior to the visit.
Ingservtur provides Transportation To The Observatories Only.
