East Coast Astro

  • 261-302 Pakiri River Rd Pakiri, Auckland, 0972 New Zealand (map)

East coast astro, the first of the season!  What a great idea, spend the day enjoying the beautiful beach at Pakiri and then come out to play for some astrophotography!  I recommend finding some accommodation up North.

Get in early this year to hone your astro skills.  Summer outings are the easiest to plan for as we're almost guaranteed clear skies.  I shouldn't say that too loudly though, hehe.

Steve Clifton Photography will again be co-hosting on this workshop.  Steve's knowledge of shooting the night sky and on how to read "Sky apps" is up there with the best!  Make sure you quiz him if you have any queries.  Don't miss this VERY reasonably priced opportunity to extend your photography skills in perhaps one of the most challenging of genres.

Location:  Pakiri beach is nice and wide and gives us a lot of room to spread out to enjoy shooting.  It also has a nice water outlet that can provide a leading line for our imagery or provide reflections of the stars on a still night.  Come along and enjoy shooting with like-minded folk in a safe environment.  You'll always pick up a few tips and well, practice makes perfect!
