Astrophotography lessons in East Sussex

I’d like to trial a hands-on Astrophotography workshop with a few photographers in Sussex, based either at Seven Sisters or up on Devil’s Dyke.

The session will need clear skies, a new moon and fairly low wind. So it might be a little awkward to organise, but I’m willing to try.

I think the session could focus on:

  • camera settings
  • maximum exposure length
  • over-exposing for light pollution
  • star focussing using a diffraction filter
  • using an equatorial mount for wide field photos
  • lens choice
  • star trails
  • a brief guide to post-processing

You’d need to bring:

  • camera
  • tripod
  • remote shutter
  • warm clothes

The first session will be free, as it’ll mostly be an experiment.
