Zoom Workshop- Astrophotography

This workshop will be a beginners guide to astrophotography. I am very new to astrophotography and will try and share some of my successes and failures when pointing my camera towards the night sky.

Come along and I will share the basics of taking images of the Milkyway and star trails. We will concentrate on locating and then editing your images. What problems can you expect, and how to minimise these using in many cases free apps and programs and camera techniques.

Follow along for a journey into the dark side

WHEN – Thursday October 22nd at 7.30pm. An email will be sent to all Zoom members on Thursday morning. If you do not receive the email link and you would like to attend, please contact me
