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:
- remote shutter
- warm clothes
The first session will be free, as it’ll mostly be an experiment.
Please email me if you’re interested:
