Event Details

Hi Astrophotographers!
This workshop is for anyone who would like to learn how to or improve photographing the Milky Way with
your DSLR camera using Manual mode settings. Beginners are welcome.
First, we will go over some of the theory at Samford Hotel before we head down the road to our shooting
location which is a beautiful horse property. Although it has a little bit of light pollution from the city due to
the proximity the Milky Way is visible on a clear night. In this workshop, we will be focusing on the basics
of wide field Astrophotography which will give you a foundation to build on. We will not be covering lunar,
deep space photography or star trails in this workshop.
The sun will set at 5.11pm and the Galactic Center visibility starts at 7.08pm. The Galactic centre is the
most visible part. This is when we want to start photographing the core of the Milky Way. The moon will be
nearly a new moon which sets at 2.33pm which will be ideal for us to not create as much light pollution.
I will be there to guide you. The most important thing is to enjoy the evening and have fun! And to avoid
stepping on horse poo on the paddocks! ; )
