Following on from the success of our popular Astrophotography Nights, we’re delighted to be running three new Introduction to Astrophotography courses this winter.
Join us for an informal and fun session that includes an introductory workshop (co-presented by Jodrell Bank Observatory’s Dr Anthony Holloway), along with a chance for you to try out your equipment and talk to our knowledgeable team.
You’ll learn how to use your DSLR or Compact System Camera to get started in Astrophotography. You’ll also discover how you can use simple equipment such as a tripod and lenses, to capture different images of the night sky, from wide views of planets and constellations to the Moon and how to reveal the colours of the stars. There’ll be a chance too, to look at additional equipment you can use to expand the range of images you make.
No previous knowledge required. Wear a warm coat and bring a flask!
