Central Oregon’s high altitude, crisp, clear air, low humidity and cool nights provide excellent conditions for Night Sky Photography. With a choice of moon lit nights illuminating the landscapes or capturing the Milky Way and numerous star trails during the dark moonless evenings, our local photographer guide will show you the best locations, as well as the proper camera settings for capturing those magical images. One of our most popular Bend Photo Tours.
Sunriver is designated as Oregon’s first Dark Sky Place!
Once you have seen the clear sky of Central Oregon and captured it in your photos, you know why.
