What Gear do I Need?

Camera Gear

There’s an old saying that “the best camera is the camera you have with you!”

Any camera is fine, but you will have the best experience if you bring a DSLR or Mirrorless Camera and lense(s). An iPhone is probably not the best option on a tour like this.

Make sure you have a couple of fully charged batteries and plenty of space on your memory card. Spare batteries and cards are strongly recommended.

Tripod & Accessories

It is recommended you bring a tripod for this tour however, it’s ok if you don’t have one. A tripod is necessary if you wish to participate in any of the Astro Photography components of the tour.

If you don’t have a tripod please contact us and we will do our best to provide one for you.

Personal Items

A full list of what you need to bring will be emailed to you closer to the tour date, once you have registered.
