Join Luke Tscharke and Jay Evans on an incredible opportunity to photograph the night sky in Australia's outback around Uluru, Northern Territory. You will be treated to five days and four nights (three full days total) of dedicated astrophotography coaching and tuition, both in the field during capture and back at the accommodation including post-processing sessions. With ideal timing for dark night skies and the milky way rising in the early evening this workshop will help you take your astrophotography to the next level. With the absence of light pollution, the clear night skies in the outback really do have to be seen to be believed. Itinerary includes:

- Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) - sunset/astro (where possible)
- Yulara village and surrounds
