Event: Fourth Annual Astrophotography Conference
An opportunity to meet, trade secrets and perform astrophotography under the darkest skies in the Eastern USA.
Who should attend?
Simply put: Everyone. Very few astrophotographers, regardless of their level, have access to dark skies. We invite you to take advantage of our location to capture images at your own level. Avoid light pollution with us. Come with your own equipment or use ours to shine with your best images.
The registration fee for the four-day Astrophotography Conference 2018 is $150.00 per participant, with a 10% discount for APO Members.
Events will occur from October 11 - 14, and will be held at the Roll Off Roof Observatory (178 Big Wolf Rd., Tupper Lake).
