Nightscapes astrophotography tour

We are seeking expressions of interest for this tour. Email tbu@thebackyarduniverse.com.au
It is designed for beginner to intermediate astrophotographers who want hands-on instruction on how to take photos of the night sky & astronomical objects. Participants are required to bring their own cameras and their own laptop. They are encouraged to bring their own telescope if they have one.
The nights (weather permitting) will be used to teach image acquisition techniques. The days will be spent learning image processing techniques. We are planning a 4 day + 3 night self-catered tour, timed to coincide with a New Moon to ensure hours of dark skies, and staying in shearer's quarters in the southern Flinders Ranges.
