Event description

Description

This field trip is dependent on weather.

Photographing the Milky Way isn't as tough as it seems. It just requires the right equipment and patience. Foto Dono will be hosting a Low Light excursion to Caspersen Beach. There you should have an opportunity to photograph the Milky Way, among a few other things. Trying to photograph at that location does have its challenges, mainly because of light pollution. However most of the shooting will be at the beach or similar spots.

The main goal for the field trip is to provide an experience in creating a single shot exposure or multiple exposures for stacking of the night sky. These images will then need to be rendered in post with Lightroom, Photoshop or other editing software. However, the location also provides other opportunities to create images in Low Light with interesting landscapes. Dono will be guiding you to these spots.

Field Trip Fee - The fee for this field trip is $29. However, you may pay on site the night of field trip. This is a cash only option. Please bring exact amount. Dono will not be able to make change. To choose this option select the Pay on Location ticket.

Refunds - If the event is cancelled due to weather then a refund will be issued. However, there are no refunds if the Milky isn't visible due to cloud cover. This is a low light field trip with an opportunity to photograph the Milky Way. Dono can’t guarantee the Milky Way will be visible. That is not one of his super powers.

Location - We will meet at Capersen Beach in Sharky's parking lot at 8:00 PM. Additional details will be emailed to registered participants 48 hours before we meet up.

Here is the timeline for the sky that night.

  • The Moon Sets @ 4:00 PM
  • Golden Hour @ 6:30
  • The Sun Sets @ 7:02 PM
  • Blue Hour @ 7:16 PM
  • The Galactic Center (Milky Way) becomes visible @ 8:19 PM
  • The Galactic Center (Milky Way) visibility ends @ 10:36 PM

Equipment - Keep in mind this is depending on weather. So come prepared. Bring bug spray and a flash light. You will be doing multiple long exposures for about 30 seconds so bring a sturdy tripod. Those light weight tripods maybe great for carrying around, but don't really lend themselves to proper support. Bring a remote switch, an intervalometer works best. Especially if you are going to be stacking your photos. An intervalometer will allow to set up your camera for multiple long exposures without touching the camera. You'll need a wide-angle lens like a 24mm or wider for the Milky Way with at least a 2.8 f/stop.
