Astronight -

from 199.00

Imagine you sitting under a dark stary night, and you look up and see all the wonderful white speckles as they decorate the sky. 

Now imagine you can see those stars, comets, galaxies, and all the other astrological wonders. You might think you need big fancy telescopes, or the latest in technology to do that, but the truth is with a basic DSLR and lens you will be able to see more than you mind might imagine. 

The feeling that you get when you see the milky way in all its glory is in explicable. I will take you to some of the best areas in the local area that offer not just dark skies but great compositions to make you photos stand out even more.
