Dear Custer Institute; Barbara, Chuck and all staff, I am Angela Falsetta. For many enjoyable and precious years, Myself and daughter Jennifer Falsetta attended the Gamboree weekends and some one night visits over the years.These we hold in our hearts forever. We have not been able to attend for some years due to pressing circumstances that were not in our control. It's been about six or seven years since we have been able to be with you guys and enjoy the indescribable atmosphere of Custer Institute and all of you!. Hope to see you this year. Left you a message. Please call me. i am concerned if the New Moon (there abouts) coincides with the Gamboree scheduled weekend. Please respond. Thank you and miss you all, Sincerely, Angela and Jennifer Falsetta

Very friendly staff. All sorts of people come to share their interest and watch the skies on good Saturday Nights. Yes it's far out east but the staff and patrons are so polite well classed people, don't worry about not fitting in with the demographic the staff here don't care about how you look or where you come from, all they care about what you're here to see (the stars_ and are happy to show and explain and share the night :) Just bring a buck or two to donate as Custer is a non-profit and operates on its members interest in stargazing viewing to the public is free on Saturday nights, it relies on the goodwill of the patrons to continue this great service

A wonderful place for all. Telescopes are open to the public EVERY Saturday night (weather permitting). The big Dobson scope in the dome is AWESOME, and they have the darkest skies on long island. Enthusiastic astronomers explain everything, and make the heavens come alive! It's only about 45 minutes beyond Riverhead, and there's lots to do on the way (such as winery tours, farmstands, fine dining, and nice scenery).

Beautiful. A wonderful place to visit to see the stars, especially to see a meteor shower.
