Introduction to Astrophotography - Jodrell Bank
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 on site at Jodrell Bank with expert guidance.
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, to capture different images of the night sky, from planets and constellations to the colours of stars and star trails. 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 is required to attend this session. However, you will require your own camera with full manual controls and a tripod. Outdoor clothing and waterproof footwear is advisable. Hot drinks will be provided.
This event is suitable for adults and young people 14+. All attendees under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Please note, observing the night sky is weather permitting.
Please note, car parking is now charged at £4 per car for event bookings.
Blue badge holders can park for free.
