Join Bodhi on Saturday-Sunday April 14-15th, 2018 for a night of amazing astrophotography and camping under the star in the Mojave Desert, then an entire morning/early afternoon dedicated to editing images captured the night before...total for this tour is just $495 USD (please be sure to ask about available discounts)

Included in this tour are all camping fees, firewood, campfire dinner, bottled water, and breakfast in the morning. You will need to provide your own transportation to and from where we will be meeting, your own lunch on Saturday and Sunday, as well as any snacks you care to eat during your stay. If you prefer to have a hotel room instead of a campsite, then you will also have to pay for and make your own lodging accommodations for that. You will need to bring your own chairs, tent, sleeping mat, and/or sleeping bag, but I have plenty of extra equipment that can be borrowed, please feel free to ask.

Needed for this tour: sturdy boots (no flip-flops, sandals, or tennis shoes), layered clothing, a wind-breaker jacket for the day, a heavy jacket for night, a good headlamp, a smartphone, a laptop equipped with Adobe Photoshop CC, a good tripod, a good DSLR with a fast wide angle lens such as a 14-24mm f/2.8, or a 24mm f/1.4, or a 20mm f/1.8, and extra camera batteries.

"Stop the world. Slow down everything. Shut off the noise. Seize this moment. Reconnect. reflect. Feel and sense what surrounds you. Listen to all the colors of light that envelope you. See the melody and harmony that floats about unnoticed. Taste the solitude of all this wonderment. Smell the beautiful silence within your peaceful serenity. Illuminate. Then, reach out and touch your faith. This is my world." ― bodhinku
