Courses and advice

On Saturdays, we offer courses in stargazing, astronomy, telescope and astrophotography. These take place at Stonehenge Aotearoa.
Stargazing course

Looking at the night sky can be more than just gazing in awe. Learn what is there, where to look, how to find them.

Introduction to Astronomy Course

This course covers the basics of astronomy. What’s a star? How do they work? What’s an exoplanet? Know what you are looking at.

Telescope course and advice

Are you planning to buy a telescope? Do you know what to get? What size? Type? Eyepieces? Adaptors? What about mounts? Where to buy them from? Find the answer to all these scary questions.

Astrophotography

Have you ever wanted to reproduce your own amazing shots of the night sky like the Hubble Space Telescope? Are you a deep sky astrophotographer or a night landscaper? If you ever thought about astrophotography and you are not sure where to start, then this is the course for you.

We are

Haritina Mogosanu and Samuel Leske,

We believe that access to the night sky should be affordable and open to anyone. We are made of stardust, this is probably the most significant connexion we have to each other and with the Universe.

Our place is where everyone is welcome to appreciate the night sky. You don’t have to know anything about the night sky, all you need is a curiosity to look up.

Kids

We believe that is really important for kids to appreciate the night sky and we want to help them be aware of what is possible and what their future might hold. When you realise we are all made from stars, you also realise anything is possible.

Therefore, for Star Safari, kids 12 and under are free.

We love

telescopes,
Mars,
