Astro workshop #2 & #3

Updated: Aug 17, 2019


Mount Ceder - The Arch

We had a blast with our first Astro workshop in July 2019....the accommodation and food were great and every one could not stop complementing the chefs. We were blessed with perfect weather the whole weekend. So with no wind and clouds the stars came out to play.

Due to the success of the first course and great demand we have decided to host two more workshops before the Milky Way disappear till next year May. We have a big SURPRISE for you on this workshop.

“Success is not something to be possessed. Rather it is the ongoing process of becoming all we can and should be.”
