Introduction to Landscape and Deep-Sky Astrophotography

March 13 @ 11:30 am - 12:45 pm EDT

Learn how to capture stunning landscape and deep-sky astrophotography images of the Milky Way, the Aurora Borealis, star trails, the moon, distant galaxies, comets, stunning gas nebulae, and other treasures of the night sky using a DSLR or mirrorless camera, and even a smartphone! We’ll begin by exploring the top landscape and deep-sky astrophotography subjects and the best times of year to capture them. Then, you’ll learn the basic astrophotography gear you need and how to set it up – lens choice, focusing tips, composition techniques, exposure settings and more. You’ll learn when you need a star tracker and when you don’t. Next, we’ll review a host of useful apps to help you plan your astrophotography sessions for maximum productivity. Finally, we’ll conclude with astrophotography-specific post-processing tips to bring out the best in your astrophotography images. Launch your journey into space in this knowledge-packed presentation, and learn how to bring home spectacular souvenirs to share with your family and friends!
