Q. Is there an international star naming organization?
A. No. There is no government or scientific organization which name stars for people as we do. (as a novelty gift) There are astronomical organizations which name comets and chart the galaxies and celestial bodies.
Q. Where is my star registered?
A. Your star is registered within the Celestial Registry. Verification of this registration can be done by contacting the Celestial Registry.
Q. Is my star registered with the government in any way?
A. No. Please thoroughly question any person or company which claims that your registration has been made with any branch or part of the government. Having your star name listed in the back of a book, or in any book, which has copyright protection and is registered in the Library of Congress does not mean your star name is "registered with the government" in the true sense. Every published book is given a catalog registration or reference number and provided copyright protection.
Q. Do I need a telescope or can I see the star without one?
A. You may need a small telescope to see the star. Most of the available stars are deep space objects. You can utilize the provided star chart to locate the star.
Q. Why do you go to all of the trouble to have your own web site instead of using a go-between shopping mall, store front service, or using another company to sell your registrations?
A. You deal directly with us, no go-betweens, no shield to hide behind. Use of these "shield" services also adds cost......TO YOU ! We keep our costs low and pass on the quality savings TO YOU ! Great gift...Great price...Great service.
Q. Do you sell customer names?
A. No. We protect your privacy.
Q. Can there be duplicate registrations?
A. Not within the Celestial Registry. We do not recognize registrations of this nature made by any other organization.
Q. Why are your certificates less expensive than others?
A. We run an efficient organization and keep our overhead costs low. We then pass that savings on to you in the form of lower price. We do not maintain any offices outside of the U.S. which keeps our costs down. We do not utilize "shield" sales companies, we sell direct to you. All this and more keeps a quality Star Name Gift affordable for our worldwide customers.
Q. Can I return a certificate?
A. You may return a certificate if it was damaged during shipping, there was a production error, or there is an error on the certificate. We have a quality control team which verifies that the certificate is produced as you ordered. The certificate is customized to your needs.
Q. How long will it take for the certificate to arrive?
A. That depends on your global location and what shipping method you select (1st class, Priority 3-5 day, or Next Day etc.)
