Astrophotography Course

Have you ever wanted to reproduce your own amazing shots of the night sky like the Hubble Space Telescope?

Did you know that astrophotography has 3 broad categories?

Landscape, Deep Sky and Planetary

If you think about astrophotography but you are not sure where to start, then this is the course for you. We will have a look at how you get started, what kind of equipment you need, and what options are there. We will cover imaging the Moon, planets and deep sky objects like galaxies and star clusters and wide field landscape photography.
