We expect this to be a full roster with a waitlist, so if you aren't certain you will make it, please don't wait until the last minute to cancel! 

Bring your tripod. You can learn more about what other camera equipment to bring and tips on Peta Pixel and

Sunset is at 8:30pm, so you'll have an hour to set up and take some late evening photos. We'll stay several hours before returning to Baker Lodge.

You'll need a head lamp for sure (though, be careful using it when the sky is dark and others are still photographing the sky). If you pack your 10 essentials, you know you'll be covered (in fact, this is a Mountaineers rule).
