NZ Astrophotography Camp

Hi all,

last weekend we had an astrophotography camp here in New Zealand. It was a great time - with mostly clear nights. About 30 people turned up - even three from Australia came over for it! I've done a webpage, it can be seen at:




It may take a minute or two to download...

Just want to say a big "Thanks" to all who attended and made this weekend such a great success. Also thankyou to our sponsors - 'Images Plus', 'K3CCD' software, and Ursula McFarlane of Tauranga.

We're looking forward to another one in 2006 - but possibly in the New Moon weekend of Feb or March (when it's warmer for tenting).
