Astrophotography is the art of photographing the brilliance of the night sky.
After the sunsets and your eyes adjust to the darkness, you start to see the beauty of millions of stars and you look in wonder at the Milky Way spanning across the night sky. What if you could capture the Milky Way with your camera?
Well, the great news is you can, and although astrophotography poses a unique set of challenges, with the right guidance, astrophotography doesn’t have to be difficult.
Our Dark Sky Astrophotography Tour is designed for those who want to learn to photograph the night sky and Milky Way for the first time, through to those who want to take their night sky photography to the next level.
Mini Astrophotography Workshop and Meal and The Pretoria Hotel
Our tour starts with a mini workshop and pub meal at the fantastic “Pretoria Hotel”- “Situated on the mighty River Murray in Mannum, The Pretoria Hotel represents country hospitality in pure natural splendour.”
This mini workshop will give you the tools you need to start taking breath-taking shots of the night sky including the milky way. You also get to converse with other photographers over a quality pub meal including a drink of your choice.
Dark Sky Bus Tour and shooting for the stars session
After dinner we will travel to Murray River Dark Sky Reserve and you can put your skills into practice by taking some photos of the night sky including the Milky Way.
Dark Sky Astrophotography Tours offers the trip of a lifetime. Our expert guides will show you how to capture the beauty of the stars and the night sky like never before.
From the lookout, you will see some of the most amazing dark sky river views and you'll get the chance to explore and capture the beauty of the night sky in all its glory. Our experienced guides will be there to help you develop your skills, providing tips and techniques to help you get the most out of your experience.
