Group stargazing for 2
Buy a gift of a group stargazing experience where local Astronomer Robert Ince will be the guide taking attendees on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing how to find all sorts of heavenly objects yourselves.
We will try and show some of the skies wonders through our powerful telescopes and binoculars whilst attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!
Even if the weather does not co-operate we’ll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
This event is only suitable for children aged 8+ who are able to sit and listen to a speaker.
Private stargazing for 2
Buy a gift of an unforgettable, private experience of expert one to one guided stargazing under dark skies, away from light pollution.
The event will be scheduled at a date and location of your recipients choosing but I can also suggest one of my favourite stargazing locations, in accessible Nature Reserves and Forestry commission visitor centres throughout the North of England, from the Lake District, through to the Forest of Bowland, the North Pennines and over to The North East Coast taking in Northumberland’s International Dark Sky Park. These locations have been chosen to offer excellent Dark skies.
I will be the laser equipped guide taking your recipients on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing how to find all sorts of heavenly objects, I will show some of the skies wonders through my powerful telescopes and binoculars, using them to show the skies wonders and answering questions on life, the universe and everything!
Astrophotography for one
Buy a gift of an Astrophotography experience at an agreed dark sky site, your gift receiver will learn how to photograph the contrast of our dark skies and the beautiful stars above, all with just a DSLR camera, lens and tripod.
By using tracking mounts with camera lenses and small telescopes, (either your own or using my supplied demonstration equipment) you will realise that you can take pictures you never thought possible! This experience is tailored to suit your own photography skill level with all levels catered for.
