Astronomy Tours

Hi,

My friend and I would like to do an astronomy tour when we are in Marrakech in Dec 2017 that will go from Marrakech and end in Fes. Has anyone in this forum done one before and which tour and tour company would you recommend?

Thank you in advance.

Carmen

Never heard of an astronomy tour that takes that route. What you are normally looking for are dark sky areas with clear horizon to horizon views. For example, http://www.hotel-sahara.com/hotel/

Thank you Tim.

Have you or anyone in this forum heard of Morocco Desert Stargazing? (www.moroccodesertstargazing.com)

No, but his telescope is about the same light gathering capability as mine: morocco-knowledgebase.net/tim/1501-690-in-ca…

What's important is the phase of the moon. If you visit at full moon the skies will be washed out by moonlight. A good time is when the moon is waxing between new moon and crescent moon.
