Primland’s altitude and the unusual clarity of our night sky present our guests with the ideal environment for stargazing. At the top of our mountain, far from city lights and distractions, guests have a romantic opportunity to enjoy some of the East Coast’s best stargazing and to study planets, nebulae and amazing celestial objects.
Primland features a Celestron CGE Pro 1400 series telescope in our Observatory Dome. This powerful telescope provides extraordinary glimpses of the heavens and of objects well beyond our solar system. A smaller Celestron telescope located in the Great Hall can also be arranged on the Terrace for views of closer celestial bodies.
Telescope and dome presentations can be scheduled during your stay by our resident astronomers as weather conditions allow. We regularly plan special Star Master Weekend programs that coincide with celestial occurrences to provide guests with a more in-depth study of the night sky.
If you would like to take a tour of the dome, we would be glad to arrange it for you.
