Sunset with Starlight Tours Milky Way Tours
Central Oregon's high altitude, crisp, clear air, low humidity and cool nights provide excellent conditions for Milky Way and Night Sky Photography. With a choice of capturing the stunning Milky Way during the summer month or a sunset-to-night tour for a spectacular sunset and numerous star trails during the dark moonless evenings, our local photographer guides will show you the best locations, as well as the proper camera settings for capturing those magical images.

Please note: a night in the wild desert country of Oregon is a rewarding and beautiful experience for everyone, but not all cameras are created equal. To adequately capture the Milky Way and the stars, please use a wide angle lens with the biggest possible opening-- like F 2.8.
Our SUNSET WITH STARLIGHT TOURS start early enough and include the time to capture a sunset shoot followed by time to shoot the night sky.
Full-frame cameras and modern sensors will create better night photos than older model digital cameras.
