Join NZAC members for a social weekend of skiing and night sky photography. Spring in New Zealand is a fabulous time to photograph the milky way. And where better to do it than on top of a mountain, far from the light pollution of the city.
Professional instruction will NOT be provided, however over dinner on Saturday night we will gather to share tips and tricks for astrophotography before heading out into the night.
Friday – travel to Mt Ruapehu at your leisure. Hike into Ruapehu Hut – on Delta Ridge above the ski field at Whakapapa. Crampons and ice axe required for hut access.
Saturday - Social skiing followed by a shared dinner at the hut around 6pm. Astrophotography after sunset.
Sunday - Social skiing or a walk to summit plateau.
