Christchurch Astro Tours

Christchurch Astro Tours are proud to introduce you to the southern night sky. Operating from a location a mere 30 minutes south of central Christchurch, we start our night with a short talk, before showcasing the highlights of the evening with a sky tour. After which you are free to observe the nights objects through the telescope (which uses high quality optics) and ask questions. Our local dark sky tour guides are keen stargazers and can talk you through the various delights of the southern night sky. Depending on the night you may view the moon in detail or observe planets or if conditions allow, see fascinating nebulae and galaxies. The astronomy tour is aimed at visitors to Christchurch and their families and is weather dependent.
