Details of Atacama Desert Stargazing

The tour starts departuring from hotels in San Pedro de Atacama, considered the archeological capital city of Chile, since it was the main center of the Atacama culture.

During the first part of the tour, the sky can be seen to simple sight, that way you can understand what will be taught later. Our experienced guides will provide useful information to enjoy the tour to the fullest, as what is a constellation, how to learn from them, how to understand a sky map and recognize the main stars. In order to do this, the guides are supported with a green laser pointer, which helps them indicate precisely which star are referring to, in that stage of the tour.

When the moon is visible, it offers the possibility of taking photographs through telescopes, both digital cameras and SLR (the have adapters for Nikon, Canon, Minolta and Pentax). Then we will enjoy a few moments to share experiences and feel the tranquility of the desert at night, while we offer a delicious hot drink.

The tour ends with the return to San Pedro de Atacama.
